The Canadian Importers Database from ISED at https://ised-isde.canada.ca/site/canadian-importers-database/en) provides a list of importers (Canadian and non-residents) by HS code. Could this be of interest?
Also, we publish the list of TPL recipients for clothing and textiles (importers and exporters) on the departmental website at https://www.international.gc.ca/trade-commerce/controls-controles/textiles/2021-listtpl-nptliste.aspx?lang=eng. The list of TPL recipients for the year 2022 should be added to the departmental website in the next few days. If needed, we can request our data group to generate a report that would provide the importers (and their addresses) only.
Finally, we publish allocation holder lists for beef and veal: https://www.international.gc.ca/trade-commerce/controls-controles/beef-boeuf/beef-veal-list-2023-boeuf-veau_liste.aspx?lang=eng. If any others, we can let you know.
