Inspection Centres
Below are the federal inspection centres designated by Transport Canada. UCanImport recommends contacting the centre(s) nearest you in advance of your importation to see if they can also assist with the vehicle modifications as well as the provincial inspection. This is a convenient way of getting everything done at one location on the same day (and avoiding additional daily trip permit expenses). For more information, please refer to Section 8: Completing the Importation Process in the UCanImport importation guide.
