SPECIAL PLANNING AREA

Companies building projects in CentrePort North, RM of Rosser lands within CentrePort Canada, have unique access to a dedicated resource, the Inland Port Special Planning Area. This special planning area expedites the planning and land-development approval process, enabling companies to move through the subdivision and rezoning applications concurrently. This unique approach helps ensure speed to market, gives businesses cost and planning certainty, and provides the community with an accountable and transparent process. 

For more information on the Inland Port Special Planning Area visit: gov.mb.ca/mr/centreport/

FOREIGN TRADE ZONE

Companies located at CentrePort Canada can take advantage of single-window access to Canada’s Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) programs. The FTZ program that is most often utilized at CentrePort is Canada Border Service Agency’s Customs Bonded Warehouse program, which allows for the deferral of all import levies until goods enter the Canadian economy or are exported.
