Mississauga, including Shipping/Handling charges. On certain specific items, such as books, HST
of 5% will apply.
Shipments outside of Ontario to other HST participant provinces (e.g. British Columbia, New
Brunswick, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia) are also subject to the HST tax at either 13% or 5%

are subject to 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) only, including Shipping/Handling charges. The
