Please advise the difference between the Certificate of Origin Form A and Exporter’s Statement of Origin.

The exporter in the country where the goods were finished issues Form A, Certificate of Origin (for goods more than CAD 2500), or the Exporter’s Statement of Origin (for goods less than CAD 2500). Either may be used to support a claim for preferential treatment for goods imported under the General Preferential Tariff (GPT), Commonwealth Caribbean Countries Tariff (CCCT), and, with the exception of textile and apparel goods, the Least Developed Country Tariff (LDCT).

The Form A and the Exporter’s Statement of Origin must be completed in English or French.

For more information, see D11-4-4, Rules of Origin Respecting the General Preferential Tariff and Least Developed Country Tariff, and D11-4-5, Rules of Origin Respecting Caribbean.
