What Amount Of Drugs Is Considered Trafficking In Canada?

The substance and quantity will determine whether someone is charged with trafficking or not. Certain amounts also triggered mandatory minimum penalties under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. For example, for a Schedule I substance, there is a mandatory minimum sentence of two years imprisonment on importing and exporting under sections 6(1) and 6(2) of the CDSA (and a mandatory minimum of 1 year where it is for the purpose of trafficking) if there is more than 1 kg of the substance.
