Tax on Vaping Products

Starting July 1, 2024, the CRA will initiate the collection of Nunavut tax on vaping products sold within the territory. The rates are established at $1 per 2 ml of vaping product, with an additional $1 for every 10 ml beyond the initial 10 ml. These taxes will be imposed alongside the existing federal rates, which are currently identical.

Liquor Tax

Bill 4 or the Liquor Tax Act, which establishes a tax on all alcohol consumed or imported into the territory, was introduced into the Assembly in May 2022.  The tax underwent three readings and was enacted into law in spring 2023. However, it has not been enforced yet as the government is still finalizing rates and addressing other administrative matters.
