    Default Shipping Winter Clothing Into Canada

    Dear All,

    I have a friend who needs us to send a package of winter clothing into Canada and I was wondering if there are any tax restrictions?

    (E.g. If i order goods online and have them shipped into Sg, it is my understanding that if they total cost of the items exceeds SGD$400/-, I am liable to pay taxes. Does this apply to my situation of sending items into Canada?)

    Kindly advice please.

    Thank you.

    To some countries you can not send used clothing, better check with the Canadian postal system.......Iknow for Holland it is not allowed, I assume because of possibility of bringing in insects with the clothing. New is fine as long as it is not fake branded goods :-)
