I can't find any clear website on what cheeses I can bring to Canada from France.

I would like to bring:

  • mozzarella (the fresh one that is packaged with some liquid),
  • soft cheeses: Brie, Roblochon and Camembert,
  • hard cheeses: Emmental, Beaufort and Comté,
  • fresh cheeses: Little Goat Cheese "crottin".

Canadian Food Inspection Agency says the limit is 20 kg, but it's not clear which ones I am allowed.

Agence canadienne d'inspection des aliments (in French) also has an inventory of all cheeses allowed or not, but it's not always clear.

Just don't forget any layover (US, UK ...) when you fly from France to Canada. Their customs apply.

On your second link in French, I found Brie and Camembert in the search bar.

Forget about :

But isn't there any Brie and Camembert in Canada ?

I'm impressed by the limit of 20kg of dairy products

Dairy products (e.g.: cheese, milk, yogurt, butter)

  • up to 20 kilograms per person
  • Regarding you position on crottin, etc., there is an "Other cheeses" category on the link you provided (SH code 040620357599)
