GSP Handbook on the Scheme of Canada

Canada´s General Preferential Tariff (GPT) - Canada´s designation for the GSP scheme - came into effect on July 1974.

The scheme is reviewed and modified periodically. The current scheme is to expire on 31 December 2024.

The Handbook is intended to provide, in a consolidated and concise form, information regarding the tariff advantages and the conditions which need to be met to benefit from the Canadian GSP scheme.

Readers can find the comprehensive information on:

  1. Product coverage and depth of tariff cuts

  2. Beneficiary countries

  3. Treatment for handicrafts products

  4. Special treatment for Least Developed Countries

  5. Other preferential tariff measures

  6. Rules of origin

  7. Documentary requirements

While the Handbook is based on official texts, only authentic legal texts have legal value.
