As of 03:00 hour s E.D.T. on Saturday, August 19, 2006 the sale of liquids, gels and aerosols at duty free stores at Canadian airports is being restored for passengers travelling on most international flights, with some restrictions.
Travellers going to the United States (U.S.):
For all flights departing Canada and bound for the United States (U.S.) from airports providing U.S. pre-clearance services (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal), the sale of liquids, gels or aerosols at duty free stores will continue to be permitted provided passengers transfer these items to their checked baggage before proceeding through the screening process.
For all other flights departing Canada and bound for the U.S., liquids, gels or aerosols may be available for purchase at duty free stores and onboard aircraft depending on the airline.
