Upon landing you are required to have a list of goods you are bringing into Canada..http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publications/forms-formulaires/b4-eng.pdf
I am required to declare myself as a settler,
Settler (Tariff item No. 9807.00.00)
I hereby declare that I have read and qualify for the provisions of tariff item
No. 9807.00.00 and that:
1.I am entering Canada with the intention of establishing, for the first time, a
permanent residence for a period in excess of 12 months and I arrived in
Canada on __________________ .
2.With the exception of wedding gifts, bride's trousseau, alcoholic beverages and
tobacco products described in the Tariff Item No. 9807.00.00 Exemption Order, all
household and personal effects imported or to be imported by me under this
tariff item have actually been owned, possessed, and used abroad by me prior to
the date of my arrival in Canada.
3.All goods imported are my personal or household property and they will not be used
in Canada for any commercial purpose.
4.If any item is sold or otherwise disposed of in Canada within 12 months of the
date of its importation, I will notify a CBSA Office of such fact and pay all duties
owing at the time.
My Question is...All my goods are already in Canada and mostly been bought in Canada with a few exceptions..for example my fall Jacket, Digital Camera and a few Items of clothing..Am I right in thinking that if I had these Items on my person (my camera goes everywhere with me) then I should list them as settlers effects?
