I suppose you could write a letter or call beforehand to VW Canada, but you'd get the cold shoulder. Same reason VW of the USofA won't give you the time of day if you ask for their help in importing a VW in Canada to the US. They are separate, they won't cover for the other, and they will turn themselves inside out to make it remain so.
Sorry, but it is what it is. As usual, it is all about money.
