Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Can I bring my vehicle to Canada?

Your vehicle must meet Canadian standards, even if it was manufactured for the United States (US). Before you try to import it, check if your vehicle is on the list of vehicles admissible from the United States published by Transport Canada.

At the border, you must inform US Customs that your vehicle will leave the US permanently. US Customs recommends that you contact the port of crossing directly to find out what documentation is required and their hours of operation.

Read more information about exporting a motor vehicle from the US.


You can find some detailed information regarding costs on the Registrar of Imported Vehicles website in the Cost Considerations section.

You may want to contact the Canada Border Services Agency directly to find out the details regarding by dialing toll-free 1-800-461-9999 from within Canada or 1-506-636-5064 from outside Canada (long distance charges may apply) for some information regarding your situation.
