Customs and quarantine procedures 
 Customs clearance of the shipment requires the presence of the shipper. All shipments must be declared to customs at the port of entry. (i.e. at the airport/U.S Canada border) when the transferee lands in Canada. Transferees are required to declare to the customs that they have an unaccompanied shipment coming from origin country and show the packing inventory with values to the customs officials when they check out from the declaration channel at the airport. Customs will then issue certain documents that are needed for customs clearance. These are called B4e & B15. For the most current information regarding household and personal effects, please go to:
Shipments of personal and household effects can be subject to a thorough inspection by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). We do not recommend that you include any food items. Any single item of personal or household effects, including automobiles, that were acquired after March 31, 1977, and are valued at more than $10,000 are subject to regular duty and taxes on the excess amount.

New goods are dutiable and are required to be declared with values.
