About Us

Davidson & Sons Customs Brokers Ltd. has been a family owned and operated company since 1917. Currently, it is run by fourth generation family member, William (Bill) Davidson.

Since William Burnett Davidson founded Davidson & Sons, our main focus has been taking the burden of customs compliance from our clients and making their experiences with Canada customs as seamless as possible. We have come to learn over the last century of operation that, above all else, our personal relationships with clients are what has been the foundation of our success.

Davidson & Sons were a founding member of the DCCHBA in 1970, known now as the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers. Membership in the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (C.S.C.B) ensures immediate updates from CBSA, the Canada Revenue Agency and other Government departments pertaining to any regulations that may affect your business. It also allows us to stay up to date on global trade negotiations and new initiatives.
