Country Regulations Topics:
In addition to the prohibited commodities listed here, it is prohibited to ship the following commodities to Canada.
Alcohol is regulated by each individual province. The Ontario Liquor Control Board (LCB) has authorized UPS SCS in Ontario as their primary Broker. UPS SCS must handle any spirits, beer, wine importing into Ontario. This applies for business to business; business to residence; or residence to residence. The Ontario LCB will not allow their broker (SCS) to release shipments outside of Ontario.
Commercial Shipments: The Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act specifies that alcoholic beverages may only be imported by a Board, Commission, Officer, or Governmental Agency legally authorized to sell intoxicating liquor.
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) confirms the maximum of 45 litres daily to any one Ontario consignee.
As there is no approved process for clearing alcohol through the other Provinces, we do not expect to see alcohol shipments outside of Ontario and if we do, normal RTS processes will be in effect. In the case of Quebec, goods will be surrendered to Canada Customs and will not be returned.
No market authorizations have been issued to date, so no commercial or non-commercial importation to Canada is permitted. If electronic cigarettes with nicotine cartridges etc., are encountered at the border, they will be refused entry into the country.
A device is considered a firearm if:The muzzle velocity of the projectile from the device is greater than 500 feet per second (152.4 meters per second) and the muzzle energy is greater than 4.2 foot-pounds (5.7 joules). If both of these standards are exceeded then the device is considered a firearm under Canadian law and will remain prohibited even under the UPS ISC Program
A device is considered a replica firearm if:The device is not a firearm (as defined above) but is designed to resemble a real firearm with exact or near precision. Replica firearms are classified legally as a prohibited device in Canada. UPS Canada and its major competitors prohibit the transportation of prohibited devices.
All paintball marker and other air soft gun shipments, including those shipped by approved ISC shippers, are subject to inspection by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and may delayed or refused entry into Canada at the CBSA's or UPS's discretion.
Additional Information regarding replica firearms:
As a general rule, devices made out of clear plastic and those that are significantly smaller than the real version are not classified as replica firearmss. Brightly coloured paint does not necessarily exclude a device from the definition of a replica firearm. Inquires regarding a particular make and model of air gun can be made to the The Canada Firearms Centre (CAFC) by contacting one of their firearms technicians at 1 800 731-4000, ext 1060.
