Importing anything is, at best, a tricky bureaucratic endeavor around the world. Even with kind border agents, some would also describe importing anything into Canada as bureaucratic and a little pricey. If you're not Canadian, importing commercial, professional equipment can be problematic and you could even be denied entry. Canadians can face hefty importing taxes.
Non-Canadians bringing in gifts to a Canadian above 60 Canadian dollars are supposed to declare the gift, according to the official Declaration card. This means any commercial tools above $60 will likely be taxed.
If you are Canadian and have been out of the country for 24 hours, you are exempt from claiming goods up to $200. If you've been gone for over 48 hours, you are exempt for up to $800 and 7 days, $800, as well, but with a few more concessions for the longer absence.
In the end, buying your FK Irons machines and devices directly from one of our official distributors in Canada is simply the most hassle-free, sure-fire way to go.
They have machines and devices in stock, in-house and ready to send.
