Supply-managed Tariff Rate Quotas (TRQs) – Applications

How to apply for an allocation

  • Step 1: Review the Notice to Importers, including the policy on related persons, to see if you are eligible for an allocation.
    • Note: Each TRQ is administered independently in accordance with the applicable policies. You may apply for an allocation under multiple TRQs, but you must submit a separate application for each TRQ and demonstrate that you meet the applicable eligibility criteria and activity tests.
  • Step 2: Familiarize yourself with the key dates for the TRQ of interest to ensure that you submit your application on time.
  • Step 3: Complete the application form.
    • Ensure that you attach any required supporting documentation.
    • Incomplete applications will be returned without action.
    • Note: If you do not have an Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA) file number, you can obtain one by submitting an Application for an EIPA File Number form (PDF version, 168KB).
    • Although you can submit an application without an EIPA file number, it is highly recommended that you obtain one in advance.
    • EIPA file numbers are also required to apply for a shipment-specific import permit.
  • Step 4: Submit your completed application.
    • Please submit your application by email to the relevant email address.
    • We do not accept applications submitted via facsimile nor by mail.
    • Note: It is important that you provide complete, accurate and truthful information in your application. This information will be considered to determine your eligibility for an allocation and the amount for which you may qualify.
