Published by at 7:43 am under Cross border shopping

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.
