You will pay GST or HST (goods and services tax or harmonized sales tax) for orders fulfilled and shipped in Canada. These rates vary by province. The current rates are: 5% (GST) in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Quebec, Saskatchewan, and Yukon. 13% (HST) in Ontario. 15% (HST) in New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
A couple of other provinces add a provincial sales tax.
For example, Saskatchewan charges PST (provincial sales tax) at a rate of 6%, so to figure out how much tax you’ll pay on orders to Saskatchewan, you can add the PST (6%) to the GST (5%) to equal 11% of your order’s total.
Quebec also charges QST (Quebec sales tax) at a rate of 9.975%.
These two provinces list their taxes separately from GST/HST on invoices.
Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island are subject to point-of-sale rebates that apply to “children’s clothing and footwear.” Children’s clothing and footwear are exempt from HST. In this case, only the federal tax is charged instead of the full GST/HST rate.
