New Exporters to Border States (NEBS) Mission to Buffalo – July 21-22, 2010


You are cordially invited to participate in the next NEBS Mission to Buffalo on Wednesday, July 21 and Thursday, July 22, 2010.

NEBS is a practical, cost-effective program ideally suited to give Ontario manufacturers, distributors, agents and other business professionals the tools they need to easily expand their business interests across the border. The NEBS program offers guidelines to Ontario businesses for USA sales, shipping and business transactions.

Expert briefings on a range of topics include dealing with border issues such as U.S. business travel and immigration requirements, currency exchange options, business planning, taxation, and legal considerations and U.S. Customs clearance procedures. Participants will visit a fulfillment warehouse in Buffalo. In addition, a briefing on provincial and federal trade programs and services will be provided along with one-on-one meetings with the trade commissioners at the Canadian Consulate in Buffalo.

NEBS is run by the International Trade Branch of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade in co-operation with the Canadian Consulate General in Buffalo.

If your company has been in business for at least one year and has a manufacturing or service base in Ontario and you are interested in obtaining additional information on this program, please complete the form here and fax it back to the fax number provided.
