At Comox Valley Delica, we’ll import your Japanese vehicle to Canada, deal with all the red tape and ensure it complies with all Canadian standards.
We specialize in Mitsubishi Delica imports from Japan, but can import any foreign vehicle that’s at least 15 years old.

Two ways to import a vehicle into Canada with us:
