    There should be no customs duty if they were made in USA.

    You will be charged gst and PST.

    Use Canada post they only charge $5 handling plus the gst+pst.

    If you use a courier then you have to pay a $35 brokerage fee+pst/gst.

    If it's under $35 and marked as a gift, it may go right through with any charges.
