Import and export

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.
