Canada Border Services Agency Quarterly Lists of Prohibited Publications

In Canada, customs officials have had the power to ban imported publications since 1847. For more than 170 years, customs officials have detained, examined, damaged, turned back and even destroyed countless books, magazines, newspapers, pamphlets, movies and so on.

Today, officials of the Canada Border Services Agency prohibit publications that they regard as obscene or as hate propaganda. Officials derive their power from Tariff Item 9899.00.00. Most of their decisions are never appealed to an open court.

The Canada Border Services Agency also releases quarterly lists. They indicate which titles officials have detained and examined and which titles they have barred from entering Canada. We present the most recent of these quarterly lists in portable document format (PDF) below.
