CentrePort Canada - Canada's First FTZ

Location Canada 2010
CentrePort Canada - North America's new 20,000-acre inland port - has been designated Canada's first foreign-trade zone (FTZ). It is located in Manitoba next to Winnipeg's James Armstrong Richardson International Airport, and offers greenfield investment opportunities for a wide variety of business operations including distribution, warehousing, and manufacturing.

In addition to its strategic location in the central time zone, CentrePort Canada boasts a modern, well-established network of highways, railways, and air and sea connections to important international markets, including eastern and western Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Latin America, as well as Europe and Asia.

As an FTZ, CentrePort Canada also offers significant cost savings to foreign investors and businesses looking for new ways to bring their products to the North American marketplace. FTZ benefits available to business include deferral of customs duties and a GST exemption on products imported to Canada for processing before re-export out of country.
