You need to check the vehicle's admissibility into Canada before you attempt to import the vehicle with the Registrar of Imported Vehicle. You will alos need to provide any required recall clearance forms , and comply with the vehicle's modification requirements.

Relist: The information given that which i already knew. Your answer did not help me and i end up finding out more from a friend and other websites. Being a temporary resident i can buy a modified car from the US and take it to canada which a canadian citizen would not be able to do. thank you for your attempt to answer the question anyways. You should file this information for the next time another australian might ask it. .
