Visiting Canada

Reporting to the CBSA
Snowmobilers crossing the border into Canada MUST first report to a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) port of entry for inspection. Failure to report to the CBSA may result in arrest, criminal charges and/or the seizure of your snowmobile and/or monetary penalties. Foreign nationals who provide false information could also be denied entry and be banned from returning to Canada.

PLEASE NOTE: The six (6) metre cleared area (slash) along the Canada/United States (U.S.) border is NOT a “border neutral zone”. The side of an international boundary marker that you are on is considered to be the country that you are in. This means that anyone riding the six (6) metre cleared area (slash) along the Canada/U.S. border could be in violation of either Canadian or U.S. laws.

Bringing Goods Across the Border
When you enter Canada, you have to declare all of the goods you acquired while outside of Canada, such as purchases, gifts, food, plants, prizes or awards that you are bringing with you or are having shipped to you.

If you bought goods at a Canadian or foreign duty-free shop and they are still in your possession, make sure to include them in your declaration.

You must also declare any currency or monetary instruments you have valued at CAN$10,000 or more. This amount includes Canadian or foreign currency or a combination of both.

If you are a Canadian or returning resident, make sure you also declare any repairs or alterations you made to your snowmobile, vehicle, vessel or aircraft while you were out of the country.

You must declare all weapons and firearms to a CBSA officer when you enter Canada. For more detailed information on importing a firearm into Canada, including licensing, registration and permit requirements, consult Import and Export a Firearm or Weapon into Canada.

Canadian cannabis laws are clear: Don’t bring it in. Don’t take it out. Transporting cannabis across the border in any form, including any oils containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD), without a permit or exemption authorized by Health Canada remains a serious criminal offence subject to arrest and prosecution, despite the legalization of cannabis in Canada.
