CPTPP Duty free clearance of goods shipped from Mexico to Canada

Goods approved with proper “proof of origin’ supporting paperwork can be exported from Mexico for duty free clearance in Canada.

Proof of Origin

The key part of all trade agreements is ensuring the goods qualify under the rules of origin. Many incorrectly assume that if goods are sent from a qualifying country, they should qualify for duty free status.   Country of origin is not determined solely by where the goods are sent from.

The country of origin rules have been simplified under CPTPP but can still get complex.  The guidelines for country of origin qualification include:

  • Goods are considered originating if they are wholly obtained, such as goods that are grown, raised, caught, or extracted in Canada /CPTPP country.

  • Goods are considered originating if they are produced in Canada or a CPTPP country entirely from originating materials.

  • Goods are originating if they are produced in Canada/CPTPP country from non-originating materials that undergo production in Canada/ CPTPP country, such that the resulting good satisfies the applicable product-specific rule of origin. The value of the non-originating goods that are part of the originating product can be considered dutiable.

Duty Free import for parcels sent from Mexico to Canada under CPTPP

The amazing part of CPTPP is that parcels containing products valued less than CA$1600 do not require a certification of origin to claim CPTPP preferential tariff treatment.

  • Parcels containing products under CA$1,600 can be considered for duty free status if the following conditions include:

  • A signed statement completed by the importer, exporter or producer certifying that the goods originated from a CPTPP country

  • This statement is required on the commercial invoice and we recommend adding an additional stand alone statement/ supporting document. See

  • The goods must meet the origin rules. For example, marks to indicate that the goods are not a product of a CPTPP country will disqualify the goods and have issues related to mis-declarations.
