Export Controls and Controlled Goods Program

The Export Controls and Controlled Goods Program applies to:

  1. Anyone who plans to export material goods, technology or data outside of Canada; and/or,
  2. Anyone currently working or anticipates working with Controlled Goods.
What goods, technology and data are captured under the Export Control Laws?

These include military, dual-use and strategic goods and technology and all U.S.-origin goods and technology that are controlled pursuant to Canada’s commitments made in multilateral export control regimes, bilateral agreements and certain unilateral controls.

Strict restrictions also apply to ‘controlled goods’, which include components and technical data that have military or national security significance and which are controlled domestically by the Government of Canada and defined in the Defence Production Act.
