I've bought a large packaging machine from the USA and the vendor is charging $5000 to install it in my plant here in Richmond, BC. I know the machine is duty free, but do I have to pay any duty or GST on the installation charge?

Installation charges in Canada are normally not included in the value for duty calculation providing they are itemized separately on the documents and the charge for the installation is reasonable.
