VAPING PRODUCT EXCISE TAX JAN. 1st

What is it?

The Canadian federal government is introducing an excise tax that will require every vape juice bottle or pre-filled pod sold within Canada to be excise-duty stamped (similar to the excise stickers found on tobacco and cannabis products)

How much is it?

       •$1 per 2mL on the first 10mL of vape juice (or pod, or disposable)
        ($5 on the first 10mL of a bottle)

       •$1 per 10mL above the first 10mL

This will effectively add $7 in tax on a 30mL bottle, $10 in tax on a 60mL bottle, and $16 in tax on a 120mL bottle.

Bottle Size

Federal Excise Tax Per Bottle

30mL

+ $7.00

60mL

+ $10.00

120mL

+ $16.00

When does it start? 
Manufacturers will have to start duty-stamping products as of October 1st, 2022. Retailers can sell non-stamped products purchased before October 1st until January 1st. As of January 1st, all vape juice sales in Canada must be excise stamped.

Mystic Vapor has projected an amount of inventory before October 1st to get as close as possible to January 1st without having to charge the excise fees. However, as inventory depletes, products will appear with the excise tax and stamp added on.

What if I import vape juice from outside of Canada?
Canada Border Services Agency and the Canadian Revenue Agency have made it clear that any vape juice shipped into Canada from outside Canada will be required to be duty-stamped or considered not legal for sale or import.

Is it cheaper to smoke?
Absolutely not. Even with this tax, it is still vastly cheaper to vape. A pack-a-day smoker will spend ~ $126 on cigarettes vs. ~ $30 on vape juice in the same 1-week period.

What products are affected?
This only affects e-liquid or anything that can be vaped (disposable vapes, pre-filled pod systems such as Juul, STLTH, etc). This also affects D.I.Y products (VG, PG, Flavoring, and Nicotine Base at 20mg/mL when sold for vaping purposes).
