Canadian residents returning to Canada will have a increases to personal exemption limits, effective June 1, 2012. CBSA also promise to expedite clearance and make cross border travel more convenient.
|Increased traveller personal exemption limits effective June 1, 2012|
|24 hours or more||up to CAN$200||Goods must be in your possession at time of entry to Canada.|
|48 hours or more||up to CAN$800|
|7 days or more||up to CAN$800||Goods may be in your possession at time of entry to Canada but are also permitted to follow entry to Canada (via courier, mail or delivery agency).|
This is a great news to cross-border shoppers. I hope this becomes a wake-up call the price gouging Canadian retailers.
