Default Importing Hookahs to Canada

Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone knows anything about importing hookahs and hookah related products into Canada, and by that i'm referring to customs and duty fees.

I know with tobacco you have to pay ~$57/kilo to get it across the border. So i'm just wondering if there are any special conditions or fees that have to be paid to import hookahs or hookah related products.

Thanks in advance,
Richard

13% Sales tax + brokerage fees is my understanding of it

Thanks, I wasn't as concerned about the tobacco itself, more so just the actual hookah pipe.

So, to get this straight, because I'm from Alberta I'd only have to pay 5% sales tax + the brokerage fees charged by the courier company. No duties. Correct?

Kinda relevant site that explained everything:

Thanks again
