    I just ordered a bunch of stuff from the Apple Store Canada's website. Looking at the tracking site, some of it is shipping from the USA. Will I be hit with duty fees by the delivery guy when it arrives?

    A fourth "nope" for even better measure. I've ordered a whole bunch of products from the online apple store here in Canada. Never been hit by any duty fees as "ericssonboi" said it's all taxed under Canadian law.

    It's the same as when you go to the mall and buy anything. Chances are it's from out of the country, but when you get to the register you don't get asked for duty or anything. Its been incorporated into the price.

    YES. I agree with the "no"s. I've gotten lots of next day deliveries via Apple Canada's Markham HQ, which makes me suspect they stock most pre-built items locally. They originated out of the States, but you'll never pay duties.

    Hehe. I said "duties".
