Non-Canadian Businesses - Customs Tariff

The Canadian Customs Tariff is based on the World Customs Organization's (WCO) Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (HS).

As an importer or exporter it is mandatory to properly classify and declare all goods coming into or leaving Canada. You are responsible for the correct declaration of your goods.
