Import & Export

Ladysmith’s location in mid-Vancouver Island makes it an ideal home for import and export businesses. These can include:

Consulting Services

Financing, Materials and Equipment

Mergers and Aquisitions

Joint Ventures

The Island is a designated Foreign Trade Zone. It offers you unparalleled access to the North America, Latin America and Asia-Pacific markets. Ladysmith is just 10 minutes from Nanaimo Airport.

The zone is one of Canada’s strategic locations for international trade. It offers a duty relief program that can have significant cash flow benefits for manufacturers. Businesses in the zone also can get direct access to government support for importing and exporting.
