Duties and Taxes

Canadians don't have to pay duties or taxes when your total shipment's value is less than CA's de minimis value, which is listed below. However, it's important to note that select products may be subject to other types of fees or taxes.

  • De minimis Value for Duty: 20 CAD*
  • De minimis Value for Tax: 20 CAD*
  • USPS De minimis Value for Duty: 20 CAD*
  • USPS De minimis Value for Tax: 20 CAD*

*excluding alcohol and tobacco where duty/tax apply

Duties and taxes are not included in your shipping charges, so you will need to pay any fees when you receive the delivery.

Transit Times

When you choose Forward.me, we'll quickly process and deliver your packages. Average shipping times:

  • Express shipping (preferred): 2 to 4 business days
  • Economy shipping: 5 to 10 business days

Depending on when you enter your shipment request and where you live in Canada, you may receive your packages faster than these estimated times.
