An import is a good, product or service brought into a country from another country.

The person or company bringing the product into the country is the importer. The person or company shipping the product from abroad is the exporter. Tariffs are often charged on imported products. These are fees imposed by customs agencies.

In Canada, moving goods from one province to another is not considered importing or exporting.
