Help keep African swine fever out of Canada
Preventing the spread of African swine fever is everyone’s responsibility. If you plan to travel to a country impacted with African swine fever, you may unknowingly be spreading this pig disease to Canada. Avoid this by always declaring farm visits, contact with pigs, and any food, plants and animal products when entering the country or face a monetary penalty up to $1,300 CAD.

Notice for importers: Cannabis
Despite legalization in Canada, only Health Canada retains the authority to issue permits or grant exemptions to import or export cannabis, under very limited circumstances. For importers with the Health Canada granted authority, please refer to Customs Notice 18-19 on calculating cannabis duty and additional cannabis duty imposed on packaged cannabis products. For more information, consult cannabis (marijuana) legalization.
