Provincial Shipment limits for Importers:
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.
