Port Alberta – Foreign Trade Zone

The Edmonton Metropolitan Region is home to Port Alberta, a foreign trade zone where investors are eligible for tariff and tax exemptions on the purchase or importation of raw materials, components or finished goods. Materials and goods can generally be stored, processed, or assembled for re-export (taxes and duties generally would not apply) or for entry into the domestic market (taxes and duties would be deferred until the time of entry).
