The definition "wood packaging" is any piece of non-manufactured wood used to brace, support, protect or secure a consignment or cargo. Wood packaging products include, but are not limited to dunnage, crating, wood boxes, load boards, pallets, wooden wire drums and skids.
Wood packaging products constructed entirely (100%) from manufactured parts: plywood, plastics, cardboard, fibre board and oriented strand board are exempt from Canada's import requirements.
Canada strictly regulates the entry of wood packaging from all countries of the world. The entry requirements for wood packaging from all areas except the continental United States are specified in D-98-08: Entry Requirements for Wood Packaging Materials Produced in All Areas Other Than the Continental United States
Importers should be aware that non-compliant wood packaging may be refused entry into Canada.
