7. Printed Matter
 
Imports must adhere to Canada Border Services Agency policy on the classification of obscene material. For the purposes
of this policy, any publication a dominant characteristic of which is the undue exploitation of sex, or of sex and any one or more of the following subjects, namely, crime, horror, cruelty and violence, shall be deemed to be obscene.
 
Imports must adhere to Canada Border Services Agency policy on the import of copyrighted books.

Imports must adhere to the import controls regulated by the Kimberley Process.  The purpose of the Kimberley Process is to prevent the international movement of conflict or "blood" diamonds that are being used to fund rebel activities in various African countries. This program requires imports and exports of rough diamonds to be accompanied by Kimberley Process Certificates (KPCs) and to be transported in tamper-resistant containers.
 
 
9. Firearms
Please contact the Canadian Firearms Centre http://www.cfc-cafc.gc.ca/ before sending any goods listed in Chapter 93. Canada Post has noted that an increasing number of inert and replica munitions such as inert grenades are being sent through
the postal network. When such items are discovered by the Canada Border Services Agency (the Canadian customs authority),
Canada Post's offices of exchange must be evacuated while experts are called in to determine whether or not they pose a danger to customs and postal personnel. This security procedureimpedes Canada Post's ability to deliver other postal items according to established delivery standards.
In view of the above, Canada has introduced regulatory changes – effective 4 October 2006 – prohibiting the transmission
of such items via the postal network. Accordingly, Canada requests that postal administrations take note of this new regulatory prohibition and take the necessary measures not to induct such items into the post, when bound for Canada.
For clarity, the prohibition applies to:
Replica or inert munitions, as well as other devices that simulate explosive devices or munitions, including replica or inert grenades or other simulated military munitions, whether or not suchitems are for display purposes.
After the effective date, such items found in the mail will be destroyed in accordance with the regulations.
 
 
10. Intoxicating beverages
 
Intoxicating beverages are prohibited unless:
a)  They are addressed to a Provincial Liquor Control Board or other Commission or body approved by the Provincial Liquor
Control Board, a registered manufacturer or distributor of such beverages; and b)  Are not prohibited as flammable materials due to the alcoholic content.

 
 
Part III:

As a result of the adoption of Canadian Federal Legislation (Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act), all Canadian or foreign currency and monetary instruments (10,000 CAD (Canadian dollars) or more) entering or exiting Canada through the mail must be reported to the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA).
From 6 January 2003, customers sending currency or monetary instruments into Canada or out of the country valued at 10,000
CAD or more, will be required to complete a Cross-Border Currency or Monetary Instruments Report – form E667.
For imports into Canada, a Customs Declaration Form must be completed and attached to the item and form E667 placed inside the item. Unreported currency and monetary instruments are subject to seizure by the CCRA and customers may face penalties and possible forfeiture.
Monetary instruments are securities such as stocks, bonds, debentures and treasury bills, and negotiable instruments such as bank drafts, cheques, promissory notes, traveller cheques and money orders when they are in bearer or in such other form as title to them passes on deliveryThey do not include negotiable instruments that bear restrictive endorsements (such as a cheque stamped for deposit only) or made to a named person and not endorsed.
