It's looking more and more like I might be taking a group of Scouts up to Quetico for a week plus next summer. Although I used to take groups up there back in the 70s & 80s, I haven't paddled that area (or crossed the border) for perhaps 20+ years.

If I bring a few pipes and several baggies (perhaps 100g total weight) of pipe tobacco for my personal use, is there any problem? Will I have to pay tax on it? Do need to bring a sealed tin or two rather than a dozen baggies with different blends?

Also, I've heard from friends that if you bring a Sig bottle or two (unbreakable aluminum bottles for taking booze into the back country) you have to pay tax on it as well. Should I hit a liquor store just over the border and buy it up there?

Thanks in advance for any advice,

Natch

No you won't have to pay any tax.

You're fine with up to 200g of tobacco and a carton of 200 cigs and 50 cigars and up to 1.14 liters of liquor. Shouldn't matter how it is packaged because it's your property but when it's in labeled packaging it's easier for them to see that your declaration is consistent with the package.

If you bring more than that, and tell them, then you'll pay... oooh will you pay.

I can't imagine why they'd care at all about any of your pipes or sig bottles.

The definitive reference is the CBSA site:

The customs declaration card (pdf) explains what you can bring without paying a cent.

So the US ceded Quantico to us? Good. Do we get to keep the Marines too?

Dang, drop an "n" and suddenly we loose a major U.S. Military base to Canada! Laughing I wonder how many times in history treaties made similar mistakes?

Also, I copied this from Canadian customs:

'You are allowed to bring all of the following amounts of tobacco into Canada free of duty and taxes:

200 cigarettes;
50 cigars;
200 grams (7 ounces) of manufactured tobacco; and
200 tobacco sticks.'

What the heck are "tobacco sticks"? They already listed cigars. Just curious.
