Canada Customs Updates are provided by Arpin International Group to help keep our customers up-to-date with matters that may impact global mobility.

When importing used or second-hand mattresses into Canada, they must be cleaned and accompanied by a certificate of fumigation. Although this rule has been in effect for almost ten years, it’s never been enforced by Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA).

Therefore, it is now imperative that all shipments destined to Canada that have not yet been packed be cleaned and fumigated prior to shipment or leave the mattress behind to comply with the Canada Customs update. Details of the fumigation procedure used and a statement certifying that the procedure was carried out must accompany the shipment. We are working with our supplier partners to find solutions for shipments enroute.

The CBSA plays a crucial role in ensuring the smooth movement of lawful travelers and trade. Additionally, the agency is responsible for upholding over 100 acts and regulations designed to safeguard the well-being of the country and its citizens.

Your Arpin Service team is aware of all shipments that may be impacted and will continue to provide you with additional updates as the situation warrants.
