What can I take with me?

Most people moving to Canada are entitled to import their used household goods and personal effects duty free; this also applies to returning residents who have been outside of the country over one year.

As with any destination careful planning is required and certain items may be problematic to ship or carry restrictions – if you have any questions at all on this or are looking for advice we’d be very happy to help.
