The Canadian Importers Database from ISED at 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 The list of TPL recipients for the year 2022 should be added to the departmental website in the next few days.
