The Canadian government does not restrict the amount of money a visitor can bring into the country, although anyone bringing in the equivalent of $10,000 Canadian or more, in any currency, must declare it to a border services agent. Failing to report currency may result in seizure of the funds, as well as a $250 to $5,000 fine.
The Canada Border Services Agency allows visitors to declare currency in three ways. Visitors can fill out form E677 at a CBSA office, sign the form and give it to an officer in person. If the visitor is bringing someone else’s money into the country, he must fill out form E667. If the money is being mailed, a copy of the appropriate form must accompany the money. If sending money by courier, the person sending the money must fill out form E668, and send it with the courier, who must present it in person at a CBSA office. All appropriate forms are available at the Canada Border Services Agency website or at the nearest CBSA office.
