Like the United States the effects of time on collecting debt in Canada can be devastating. For example: In two Canadian provinces (Ontario-Alberta) there is a 2 year limitation on suing to recover debt, which includes commercial debt. This means that if the last payment on a debt or receivable is over 2 years old, and the debtor resides or operates in these provinces, you can report the debt against the debtor's credit file but you CANNOT sue them.

As the economy continues on the road to recovery, many US companies are looking for business opportunities outside of the US for their products and services. When deciding where to export, US firms should look for ways to reduce their risk as much as possible. Canada ranks as the #1 choice for American business. In fact exports to Canada have been increasing consistently over the last 7 years. While both countries have enjoyed a long-mutually profitable relationship, at the state level over 70% of 50 US states cite Canada as their single largest export market.
With Canada's close proximity and longstanding friendly relations, it is not unusual for US companies to overlook that Canada is a foreign country and proper export trade credit policies should be followed. When that day comes being aware of the correct procedures to collect from Canadian business and consumers will give you the best chance for success without running into a myriad of legal problems.
