Note: All merchandise is assigned Harmonised System (HS) codes in order that accurate trade records can be kept, tariffs collected appropriately, customs procedures followed, and so forth. The HS system of codes, at its most disaggregated, assigns a 10-digit code to a given item. As the degree of aggregation increases, the number of digits in the code decreases. Thus, for example, the 6-digit HS code assigned to a motor vehicle with a spark-type ignition and a cylinder capacity of more than 3000 cc is 870323. The 2-digit HS code (in this case it is 87) includes not only this type of vehicle, but also many other types of vehicles and a wide variety of vehicle accessories and parts. The table above is based on Harmonised System (HS) codes at the 2-digit level. To learn more about the HS Code system used by Statistics Canada go to http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/tdo-dcd.nsf/eng/h_00048.html
