BSO Campbell: If you're disembarking from a cruise ship in Canada, be prepared to show your declaration card to a border services officer. Remember to declare any food, plants and animal related products and to report if you are bringing in over CAN$10,000. Also, don't forget that it remains illegal to transport any form of cannabis across the border without a permit or exemption from Health Canada.

Be aware and declare! For more information, visit the CBSA website.

Happy travels.
