Important considerations

It’s important to check and satisfy all government border agencies when importing a vehicle into Canada, including:

  • Transport Canada
  • Canada Border Services Agency
  • Canadian Food Inspection Agency
  • Environment and Climate Change Canada
  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Transport Canada has a list of vehicles that are admissible to be imported.

 Before buying a vehicle in the U.S., you must make sure it’s on this list. The list covers an array of elements, such as age, electronic immobilization systems, running lamps, and recall notice. Recalls can be especially tricky and Transport Canada requires that importers contact vehicle manufacturers directly on the latest notices.

It’s not enough to just have a bill of sale; your vehicle must come with documents detailing:

  • Title
  • A recall clearance letter
  • Export certificates
  • A manufacturer’s statement of compliance

Any vehicle imported into Canada must be able to comply with our nation’s strict safety standards. During the import process, the vehicle must pass a Registrar of Imported Vehicles (RIV) inspection. The RIV is a division of Transport Canada and makes sure vehicles meet Canada’s motor vehicle standards. One key factor with any vehicle passing the inspection is determining if it has been “modified” in any way. Once modified (not including routine maintenance or general repairs), the vehicle no longer maintains its original factory-issued certification. Which RIV needs to know if you have modified the vehicle to make sure it still meets Transport Canada requirements.
