What is a
Foreign Trade Zone?

An FTZ Point is one of Canada’s strategic locations for international trade where an organization with a mandate to promote local trade and foreign direct investment is uniquely supported by a single-point of access to information on relevant government policies and programs.

The Region We Support

Anyone actively exporting products from Vancouver Island, and especially anyone importing materials or components for production, manufacturing, assembly, or even storage of products for export will find significant cash flow advantages through FTZ-VI.

Federal Programming

An FTZ Task Force with representatives from Western Economic Diversification, Global Affairs Canada, Canadian Border Services Agency, Canada Revenue Agency, Transport Canada, BC Ministries of Transportation and Infrastructure, and Jobs, Trades and Technology will be coordinated by FTZ-VI to problem solve and to facilitate easy access to a suite of programs that make up the FTZ advantage:

Are you actively exporting products from Vancouver Island? Are you someone importing materials or components for production, manufacturing, and assembly? Or do you offer the storage of products for export?

Regardless of which you identify with, FTZ-VI can find significant cash flow advantages for your business.
