It would be very expensive to import, if possible at all.

Might be worth selling and buying another here - Volvo's are well-priced
in Canada www.volvocanada.com

Check out www.riv.ca

The problem is that it is difficult if not impossible to convert Euro Spec
cars to Cdn standards. There are significant differnces in safety features
and emission controls.

My advice would be to sell and buty a new or used car one here.

Good luck.

You can't do it, unless the car is at least 15 years old.

Canadian federal (i.e., country-wide central government) regulations
prohibit the importation, for permanent use in Canada, of any motor
vehicle that was originally manufactured for sale in a country other
than Canada or the United States.

In many cases, a car built to US specifications can be modified for
use in Canada. However, the regulations do NOT permit aftermarket
"grey-market" modification of a vehicle that was originally built to
European or other non-North American specifications.

The only exception is if a car is at least 15 years old. Such cars
can be imported for permanent use in Canada without restrictions.

Reference: http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/importusa/impxus_e.htm

Note that this is a matter of federal regulations. The answer will
be exactly the same, regardless of which province you would be going
to, and no one at the provincial level has any authority to make an
exception to this federal rule.

Even if you could successfully, legally modify and import your car
for the Canadian market, of course, it's far from clear whether you
would want to go to all the expense and trouble to ship it to Canada.
But, as I said, it isn't even an option.
