If it's coming through CP I would just pay the $5 or $8 brokerage and let them them do it.
thanks for the info.
So the CBSA office has nothing to do with the CP sortation plant in Mississauga? For sure $8 with CP I would let them do it. But UPS are rip off artists, a few years back I got dinged $60 on a $180 order from the states, but I thought the only way to do the work myself was to go to the border to get the parcel with paperwork.
For example if I had a UPS parcel, I can go to the CBSA office office to do the brokerage work and get my parcel?
edit ok found it
edit 2 Actually it is very close if not part of the same CP sortation building.
