The purchase limits increased to C$200 for a 24 hour shopping trip to the USA. For travelers who are out of Canada for 48 hours or more, the exemption was also increased. It is now C$800. The new customs limits will replace the previous 48-hour exemption of $400 and the previous seven-day exemption of C$750. There are no duty or tax exemptions for absences of less than one day and no change in the volume and quantity limits for alcohol and tobacco products that travelers can bring back when returning to Canada.
