Hey everyone, I'm a student living in Montreal, and I know that shipping anything from the US could become very costly very fast. I've had some bad experience with UPS when a computer bought from the US was shipped to Canada; and I wouldn't care to repeat the same mistakes if I buy camera equipment from across the border. So basically, I'm slightly confused about paying duties, taxes (GST, PST: Provincial Sales Tax?, HST: Harmonized Sales Tax?), and brokerage fees at the border. Are photographic equipment exempt from duties? And if anyone lives in Alberta, do you only pay GST (no PST or HST) when you ship from the US to Canada? If so, my parents live in Calgary, and maybe I can send it to them first. Paying only 7% tax instead of the full 15% would be worth it. Feedback from anyone with any experience in this or has heard something about this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!
