Niagara is a Foreign Trade Zone

The Niagara Foreign Trade Zone point, the first one established in Ontario, promotes the use of federal, provincial and regional programs that support export development.

Doing business in Niagara can improve a company’s competitiveness by allowing them to transfer goods into Canada, tax and duty-free, while producing and manufacturing products for final export to other countries. The policy boosts export-oriented businesses by exempting them from tariffs and HST for businesses and duty-free manufacturing.
