    Taking Veggies and Meat Into Canada-gctid817120

    Seems like every year the rules change. What can I take in the way of veggies into Canada this year (ie potatoes, fruits, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, lettuce, etc.)? Are there any restrictions on beef, ham, pork or poultry this year? Thanks in advance. Leaving in a couple of weeks and getting ready to shop.

    How far north are you going this year?

    Why don't you just buy them in Campbell River at Superstore?

    We are from Vancouver but when we are in Washington and come home to BC

    we normally don't have any problem bringing food of any kind home

    The other way (BC to washington ) is a bit of a problem with veggies and fruit

      The captain says we are not going further than the Gulf Islands this year. Bummer

        So clear. Customs in Sydney stay 1 night and shop at fairway market. Trump wants to fix NAFTA cause it is a disaster. So don't get in the way of politics. And just enjoy boating

          We have only had problems coming from bc to USA. They had us dispose of our citrus. We are told that anything with a seed or citrus is a no go. USA to BC we have had no problems but we only bring a 24 pack of beer or two bottles of wine or 1 liter of hard liquor. We frequently bring meat, bacon, cheese and milk. We don't cheat.

            I used to live in Point Roberts (type 98281 into Google Maps) so had to cross the border almost every day. The rules change every few weeks. Most border crossings have a short "cheat sheet" list of banned items. You should be able to find up-to-date info on their websites too.

            There's also a thick book about a thousand pages long (they have a copy of it at the border crossing too, and it's also buried somewhere in the Canadian government website). It's more for commercial import/export though as it mostly lists quantities, papers, and procedures you have to follow to carry certain foodstuffs across the border..

            When in doubt, declare it. If you declare it and they tell you it's contraband, you'll just have to throw it away. If you don't declare it and they find it, then they can start doing nasty things like prohibit you from entering and mark up your permanent record so you'll be pulled over and your vehicle strip searched every time you try to enter.

            The U.S. has a similar site for bringing stuff into the U.S. Though in my experience they're much more lax about it if you're a U.S. citizen. Unless you do something to piss off the border guard.
