What are the Import regulations for Cars in Canada
There are import regulations for importing a used vehicle in to Canada and you need to check if your vehicle complies with Canadian standards as set out by the Motor Vehicle Safety Act (MVSA). Not every vehicle can be shipped to Canada permanently so research is key to avoiding any fines or having to have your vehicle shipped back to the UK at your expense. However when Canada Border Services Agency requirements are met, the following circumstances allow people to import vehicles purchased without issue.
Your vehicle must be a regulated class of vehicle, 15 years old or older as determined by the month and year the vehicle was manufactured you can check this out on the V5C for your vehicle.
- If the vehicle is a bus and is manufactured before January 1, 1971.
- If the vehicle does not belong to a regulated class of vehicle under the MVSA.
- If the vehicle meets all MVSA requirements, and was acquired NEW abroad via a manufacturer’s foreign buyer program for Canadians abroad
- If the vehicle meets all United States requirements and acquired NEW abroad via a manufacturer’s foreign buyer program for North-American buyers abroad (there are additional restrictions that will apply).
- If the vehicle is a returning Canadian compliant vehicle originally owned in Canada
- If the vehicle is a returning United States compliant vehicle originally owned in the U.S. (there will be additional restrictions that apply).
