In Canada, some items might be refused for import into the country. These include; plant products, foods (meat and dairy) and tea & coffee. A full list of restricted items to Canada can be seen here – https://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/travel-voyage/rpg-mrp-eng.html. Whilst these goods are prohibited for import, solutions can be found in some circumstances, contact your local service centre for more information.
What ways are there to get an item sent to Canada?
PACK & SEND have both air and sea services to get goods into Canada. The time these services takes to reach Canada is always unpredictable as a result of customs clearance. We would estimate goods going to Canada to take 5-7 days by air and 8-10 weeks by sea.
