Guyana and Canada enjoy a close relationship due thanks in part to a large population of Canadians with Guyanese roots. Trade is expected to grow as Guyana is part of CARICOM - with continued discussions on achieving a beneficial trade agreement.

The strong Caribbean connection in Toronto is evidenced by the incredible Caribana festival. Caribana is touted as North Americas largest cultural festival with over 1 million tourists expected in Toronto during this celebration.

Major Canadian exports to Guyana includes paper/ pulp and mining machinery and parts to support Guyana's key industrial sector. Also, many Canadian Guyanese send packages to their families from across Canada to Guyana.

Shipping Terms to Consider When Shipping to Guyana

The default option for shipping internationally from Canada is delivery duty unpaid. Common carriers use the term EXW which essentially assigns all import related costs (duty, taxes, and other fees) to the receiver/ importer. Shippers from Canada can choose to pay the import fees on behalf of the receiver via a Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) options that many carriers offer. See our blog on IncoTerms and shipping terms for packages and online orders.

The disadvantage of paying import fees on behalf of the receiver is that the bulk of the import fees are often from a value added tax that the importing business may otherwise be able to claim back.
