To round out its team, we are searching for two individuals who have solid experiences ensuring our client's import or export compliance with all applicable controls & regulations in accordance with Canada Customs and other government departments.

This role requires extreme attention to detail and communications skills to effectively liaise with Vendors and internal Purchasers.

Proficiency with MS Office and ERP software are basic skill requirements.
