Canada tax table

Canada deliveries are subject to the goods and services tax (GST) or provincial sales taxes, including provincial sales tax (PST), Quebec sales tax (QST) or harmonized sales tax (HST).

Canada Post charges $9.95 on all dutiable or taxable mail and has arrangements with postal services in other countries such as the United State Postal Service for clearing packages.

Personal exemptions

You may qualify for a personal exemption when returning to Canada. This allows you to bring goods up to a certain value into the country without paying regular duty and taxes.

  • You can claim goods worth up to CAN$800.
  • You may include alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, within the prescribed limits. Refer to sections Tobacco Products and Alcoholic Beverages.
  • Goods must be in your possession and reported at time of entry to Canada.
  • If the value of the goods you are bringing back exceeds CAN$800, duties and taxes are applicable only on amount of the imported goods that exceeds CAN$800.
  • A minimum absence of 48 hours from Canada is required. For example, if you left at 19:00 on Friday the 15th, you may return no earlier than 19:00 on Sunday the 17th to claim the exemption.
