Notice to Exporters and Brokers – Export and Brokering of items listed on the Export Control List and the Brokering Control List to Russia

Serial: 1071
Date: February 24, 2022

Canada remains deeply committed to supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Canada remains concerned by the Government of Russia’s ongoing aggression, destabilizing activities and escalation.

Accordingly, effective immediately, Canada will stop the issuance of new permits for the export and brokering of controlled goods and technology to Russia.

Exporters with valid permits for the export or brokering of items to Russia prior to the date of this notice will have their permits immediately cancelled.

Only permits and applications related to specific end-uses such as medical supply and humanitarian needs may be considered for exception, on a case-by-case basis.

Global Affairs Canada will continue to monitor the evolving situation and may reassess the above decision in light of changes on the ground.
