Immigration and Citizenship

Brought car into Canada five years ago

Did you import the vehicle back in 2013 or no? If not, the problem now is that you may have already violated the Customs Act by keeping the car in Canada so long without officially importing it and may be subject to fines and or seizure of the vehicle when you try to legalize it. What plates did you keep on the car this entire time? What insurance did you have?

When you say it is a European model, do you mean manufactured in Europe for the US market or do you mean a European market vehicle? If it is the latter, then there are even more burdensome steps to get it imported and some cars may not even be admissible, unless the car is more than 15 years old.
