In Canada, plants, meats, certain fruits and vegetables, items with fur, skin, feathers or bones of endangered animals are strictly regulated. These objects will be confiscated by customs officials. Once they arrive in Canada, foreign students are considered temporary residents and are subject to the same customs regulations as Canadian citizens. Those who travel abroad during their studies are subject to the same restrictions on imports upon their return as Canadians who return from abroad. To find out more on customs regulations, contact the Canadian Embassy nearest you.
