Live Entertainment and Canada Border Crossing

We provide Advanced Border Crossing documentation and facilitate your tour’s entry into Canada. By completing all necessary paperwork, we take the stress of the border off of your hands so you can focus on your tour. We have assisted tours coming into Canada to perform at some of the biggest Festivals in Canada, including Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Country Thunder Alberta, Country Thunder Saskatchewan, Havelock Jamboree, Cavendish Beach Festival, Calgary Stampede, Big Valley Jamboree, Sunfest, Rock n’ River Music Fest and more!

We have worked with numerous U.S. Booking Agencies and Management Companies in the U.S., including Red Light Management, Creative Artists Agency LLC, William Morris Agency, Universal Music, Big Machine, Neste Live, and Live Nation, offering Advance Border Notification services to their artists.

Permanent Criminal Rehabilitation Waiver

Has your prior conviction occurred over five years ago? We can assist with Permanent Criminal Rehabilitation Waiver applications. This application can be quite intensive, however, once approved by the Canadian Government you will no longer be required to obtain a Temporary Waiver each time you enter Canada.

Temporary Approval Waiver Application

Do you have a prior conviction that may prohibit you from crossing the border into Canada? Together, we will complete the Temporary Permit application. We recommend completing the application as soon as possible as it will take some time to obtain a response from the Canadian Government. 

Advanced Border Notifications for Performers

We compile a list of everyone in your tour entering Canada from artists to stage assistants and submit it to the CBSA Office at the crossing point you plan to enter. This will help save time and potential confusion when arriving at the port of entry unannounced. We submit this notification one week prior to your entry. 

Talent Buying Services

We provide charitable organizations, festivals, fairs, casinos and special events in Canada with a wide variety of live entertainment options. Handling contract offers and negotiations, on behalf of our client, with Artist Agents is one of our specialties. We aim to negotiate a fair price and reasonable rider requests for our clients. We have developed respectful and trusted relationships with Artist Managers across North America.
