    hi fro! happy new year to you!

    basically, you would pay:

    14% GST + PST
    Shipping & Handling (depends on how big the item is)
    Duty (Canada Customs Fee)

    Now, usually, you\'ll kow the shipping and handling fee ahead of time, because ecommerce sites will tell you the shipping fee when you check out.

    The duty really depends on the value of the item and and where it was made... you can get more details of that from canada customs office :)
