Default Does new PR need to pay duty when landing?

I am anticipating my wife's arrival in about 3 months after she got approval
for PR visa app.

My question is if she does mail things over to Canada from Japan, is she
supposed to fill in some immigration/customs form to not have to pay any
taxes/duties when it goes through customs?

Is there a limitation in any ways that one is allowed to bring over here?

Include the items in either goods to follow list. When she "lands" she
should have prepared 2 lists of goods, 1. goods to follow and 2. goods
accompanying to be presented to Customs. These goods will be admitted as
settler's effects and no duty or taxes are paid. No limit, but the goods
should be "used", you can go out and purchase a container load of goods and
claim them as settler effects.

Just prepare a list of the items she is taking with her, and a list of
her goods to follow via mail.

As long as they were her items (generally, they are not to be brand
new), there is no limit to the amount of items. 5 DVD players may be a
little suspicious though. :-)

Hi,

THanks for the response.

But in regards to having her own effects mailed to Canada from Japan, how
does she avoid paying duty on it when she receives it here in the mail? Is
a sheet issued to customs upon picking up the items?

Her goods to follow list is stamped by Customs when she "lands". Canada
Post may collect GST and taxes when the goods are delivered, but she can
apply for a refund by sending her stamped goods to follow list with the
receipt to CCRA.,
