I've entered Manitoba 10 times in the last 4 years. Each time we had more than the tax free allowance. I've declared 100% of what I have on board and only twice did I have to pay for the excess.

I just take what I want and buy more if I need it.

We've had more than the allowed duty free amount hard liquor and declared it crossing at Sweetgrass still had more than the allowed when we crossed into Alaska. I can only assume as through travelers they aren't as strict and no duty was charged.

A case of beer in Alberta will cost you about $42 CDN or $31.50 USD.

Better bring your own cigs if you smoke. Canadian cigs are terrible.

That's funny! When I used to smoke and was going to the states, that's what I used to say about American cigarettes!


A little bit of history! Canadian cigs are made with Virginia style tobacco and water just like British cigs were made in the distant past. American cigs are made with Virginia, Burley and Oriental tobacco and flavour is added.

Canadians won't smoke American style cigs, Marlboro has been test launched here and failed miserably as have others.

The same exists for other products, different countries, different tastes!

Regarding being over allowable imports into Canada.
I think CBSA figures it's better to be a little forgiving on a few ounces or liters or dollars worth of goods, than waste your time and theirs sending you to secondary for further inspection and tax/duty paperwork. If you're way over the limit expect to pay duty/tax on it, but don't be surprised if you just get waved through. Like dealing with CBP going the other way, it depends on which CBSA BSO you get on any given day.
We cross weekly, and usually get waved through upon our return, after only being out of Canada for a few hours. We're always honest about what we have on board. We typically can bring back around $200 worth of stuff, and a small amount of beer or wine, but no liquor. We always have our receipts ready in hand, if asked, and are always ready and expect to pay duty/tax.
Polite and respectful helps. [emoticon]

We have great beers in Canada. And with your 30% adjustment, we are almost giving it away.

Our cigarette taxes are crazy, so if you smoke...bring what you can. On the bright side, you can buy a good Cuban cigar.

They can get a case of 24 for around $15. Some states charge over $20 per case. That's still less than a buck a can.
How much is a 24 in Canada? $40+ $50+ ?
Not exactly giving it away....

We have many many many different brands and type of beer up here for you to try. We travel back and forth across the 49th many m at times as we have relatives in the USA and we also vacation / camp in the USA, so over the years we have had the odd ( grin) occasion of having booze at the boarder going north or south.
The only reason I bring beer into the USA is if my Cuz in Oregon wants some her fav Canadian suds, other than that I have USA beer on board.
Try some of our beers up here they are pretty good.
Have a great time up here.

Seeing how I am sure statue of limitations has passed they can’t charge me after 50 years, but we would as 18 to 21 year olds would travel to Vancover and when we returned we would “Import” large quantities of Canadian beer and liquor. It I was amazing the amounts beer and liquor one could hide in even a 68 Mustang, now the stashing space in a 65 impala was huge.

Toyota Corolla sedan = $25k

Mercedes E-Class sedan = $50k

So you are saying they are both the same and one is just prohibitively expensive?

Buy at the duty free when coming north, our liquor prices will scare you. You can bring more but the duty on the excess won't make it worthwhile.


That’s “IF” there is a duty free where you cross the 49th..

PS: the Kokanee Gold is the type of Beer my Cuz in Oregon likes and we take down to when we visit them.
This was picture was taken as a Xmas gift to my Cuz from one of our local Cold Beer and Wine stores. There are a lot of American beers sold up here as well.
