Hi

I will start school on may and I want to take some of my home stuff with me, and with some I mean all my electronics (PS4, Apple TV, etc. )

Can I take them with me to Canada?

Can I take my Mexican car with me also? Do I need to fill a form or something alike?

Is there any chance that I can take all my belongings? Like kitchen furniture and bedsheets?

Hello,

I am in a similar situation with my vehicle. I am moving to Waterloo from the US for graduate school and wanted to know more about the process after arriving in Canada. The links above provided a lot of help with regards to what to do before getting there, but once I've moved do I need to register my car with the Ontario government? Is the process the same if I'm planning to move back to the US after school? How much will this cost?

Thank you!

Hello,

I am planning on moving to Canada with permanent residency status being sponsored by my Canadian citizen spouse. We are currently living in the US. I have never lived in Canada, but my husband has. Am I still eligible for bringing in our vehicle and personal belongings duty-free?

Thanks in advance!
