3) the value of the parts
4) whether package was declared as gift or not
5) whether both GST and PST were collected
6) whether you paid a CBSA processing fees

In other words, "computer parts" does not automatically mean huge customs fee as your comment misleadingly suggests. There are instances where computer parts incur no duty/tax at all.
Been taxed on...
computer screws (don't ask...)
Video Card
CPU (twice... again don't ask......)
keyboard wipes (yeah... beleive it)

Did not get tax on:
CPU heat sink

Edit: Oh and let me add iv had a handful of incidence where the 'duty' fee's were horribly close to the product price. The worst one so far is the $35 duty fee/taxes/scam on a $40 scanner + $10 shipping.
