Hi patrick; The people to talk to would be the Canadian Border Services, or at least your customer should talk to them.

Ontario is currently 5%.
I think your customer would have to meet you at the border to self broker the shed across, or pay the brokerage fee to a company that is in that business.

It feels great to sell a pen,
It feels even greater to give one to a friend!
If your presence doesn't make an impact;
Your absence won't make a difference!
