Canadian Duty Calculation Tips

Calculating Canadian duty and customs tariffs on goods being imported to Canada from the United States can be a frustrating and complicated process.

Duty rates vary greatly depending on the product and the country in which it was manufactured. Goods that are not manufactured in North America and do not qualify for a NAFTA exemption can be subject to hefty tariffs. In addition, many goods that do qualify under NAFTA still attract tariffs. In addition to Canadian customs tariffs, goods imported into Canada are subject to GST plus PST or HST, depending on the province you are importing the goods into.

If you’re having goods shipped to Canada from a U.S. online retailer, you will likely have to pay Canadian duty on the value of the goods, plus GST and PST or HST, depending on the province you are importing goods into. If you’re driving back to Canada after shopping in the U.S., you will have to pay Canadian duty plus GST and PST or HST if your goods exceed your personal exemption limit / duty free allowance.  Whether or not you pay tariffs or taxes can largely depend on the Canadian customs official that stops you upon your return to Canada or Canadian customs officer that inspects your goods when they are shipped to Canada.
