Default Re: HELP! Which Reliable Vendors Ship Affordably 2 Canada?

I just got off the phone with Canada Border Services Agency, who clarified a few things:

- According to the Exise Act the limit is actually 1kg, not 2kg. Above 1kg, the packages must be in English and French, have the proper warning labels, etc.

- According to the Tobacco Act, it's actually illegal for people to receive purchased tobacco through the mail, period. However, when it's a gift (and marked as such) they let it through.

- CBSA received orders about 2 weeks ago to start enforcing the 1kg limit, whereas before they looked the other way.
