Despite being one of the largest countries in the world, Canada has a surprisingly small population. In fact, the population density in Canada is one of the smallest in the world, with only 3.3 people per square kilometre. While Canada has very close ties to its nearest neighbour, the US, they are still closely connected with the UK, making shipping to the country favorable. Though the country is mostly an independent nation, they still claim the current British monarch as their official Head-of-state. Canada's government is a melding of a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy. While the United Kingdom claims an interest in the country, a significant portion of Canada's citizens are heavily influenced by their French heritage, and both English and French are official languages.
Canada has a very strong economy. While its largest trading partner is still the United States, the currency conversion, as of 2011, is in Canada's favour after decades of the US having the upper hand. Canada is considered to be one of the world's most prosperous countries. Canada supports free and open trade in general, ranking even higher than America in economic freedom. The country has steadily moved more toward an industrial economic base, with strong manufacturing sectors. They also excel at mining and have a strong service industry. Canada produces an excess of energy and is also still a major player in agricultural production.
While importing to Canada isn't particularly difficult, it can be hard to find an easily-digestible list of requirements and regulations. Some items and products will be entirely prohibited from importation into Canada. This can include obvious items like asbestos products and dangerous chemicals. Some unexpected inclusions are:
A full listing of imports covered by the Hazardous Products Act.
Most other issues will deal with restricted items. Restricted items span many different product categories and, minimally, must be accompanied by proper licensing, permits or declarations. Some examples of restricted items include:
Some clothing and furniture items also have applicable restrictions. More detailed information can be found through the Canada Border Services Agency.
The Canadian customs department is likely to closely inspect packages. It will not be uncommon for a Canadian customer to notice that a package has been opened and inspected, so expect that when importing to this country. To avoid this, always ensure that the required custom's declaration form is filled out fully and is as detailed as possible. It's also best to be honest, especially when it comes to the value of your package. If your package holds a value of $20CDN or less, no duty will be assessed to the recipient unless the shipment includes alcohol and tobacco products. Gifts of under $60CDN are also not subject to import tax, though this exception is applicable only to private shipments and should not be used by business or commercial entities.

Always excellent service from Parcel Monkey
Brilliant Service, would use again
My parcel arrived very quickly. My only problem was the UK post office personnel did not know what to do until the fourth clerk came to help. My issue is with the training of the small postal outlets that first quoted more than double what I ended up paying and with poorly trained clerks who were unfamiliar with the global mailing network.
I used Parcelforce priority through Parcel Monkey, it was half price compared to going direct to Parcelforce. I took it to the post office Monday and it arrived in Canada on Wednesday. The process was easy and straightforward.
Fast delivery and helpful to see tracking updates. Thank you
Ive used Parcelmonkey on 15 separate occasions to send goods to Canada. The webpage is easy to understand and to navigate around. Having an address book option is a big plus, also storing payment details saves a lot of time. As parcelmonkey gives you a choice of carriers, I tend to use Parcelforce, which is usually the cheaper courier service. Every parcel has arrived within a matter of days, intact and undamaged. I would recommend Parcelmonkey to anybody who was looking to send a package for a reasonable price and for it to be delivered promptly and safely.
Easy to use and easy to track. Customer service was brill when I couldnt find the customs declaration to print out. Thumbs up
Awesome service!!! A1. Highly recommend! So easy to use.
