From time to time, Canadians may wish to provide humanitarian aid to Mexico through the donation of used goods and other materials. Given current Mexican customs and health regulations, which make the importation of goods - particularly used clothing and vehicles - very difficult, the Canadian Embassy in Mexico strongly recommends against this practice. Should Canadians wish to contribute to humanitarian aid projects in Mexico, we recommend you do so through a cash donation to reputable Canadian and/or Mexican NGO’s and international organizations (i.e. Red Cross).

For more information on Mexican NGO’s and/or humanitarian organizations, you may wish to contact the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives Coordinator at the Embassy of Canada in Mexico City:

You may also contact the Mexican Embassy in Canada for further details on duty-free donations to Mexico.
