• The government of Canada is auctioning off seized items at dirt cheap prices before the holiday season.
  • This is your chance to grab some luxury items at serious discounts.
  • From dishes to headphones, appliances, and even cars, see what you can get below.

Have you ever wondered what happens to the things that are seized by the government at the border or airport, when people don't pay duties? What about when a company has a shipment coming in and then goes bankrupt? Well, the Government of Canada manages all of these goods under the ministry of Public Services and Procurement, where they are eventually put up for auction so that Canadians can lawfully acquire the seized goods and make use of them. 

According to the Canadian Press, this is why GCSurplus exists: to redirect seized goods from the landfill and to also help the government make a little extra cash.

There is a GCSurplus warehouse in Montreal, meaning there are some great finds available right in our backyard. But there are also goods up for auction across the province and across the country, with some even eligible for shipping.

If it sounds like you've just come across some weird government-run eBay... well, you've essentially got the gist.

We took a look at some of the things up for auction right now in Quebec and Ontario and, honestly, if you felt like getting some of your Christmas shopping done right now, you're in the right place.

Keep in mind that these products are sold as-is, which can sometimes mean they may need a little work before they are fully functional. But for the most part they are ready for use!
