Well, You will have to pay the applicable GST & PST on a product imported into Canada from the USA (plus also any brokerage fees that are applicable)...sometimes that is almost nothing, sometimes it's a bit more - all depending upon the item/s.

Also, import duties 'may' apply too - this again all depends upon 'where' where the good are actually manufacured and the associated NAFTA block tariffs, etc.

IF you want to avoid any nasty surprises...just phone up the Canadian Border Services Agency and ask them what the applicable tariffs will be.

Hope this helps,
