The item is coming from the States I assume?
The limit before which you may get taxed GST and PST is $60, I believe. That applies to goods made in the US; if it is made in another country (eg. China) your items are subject to duties as well, and the percentage is dependent on the type of good (clothing 18%, accessories 10%). You will not be charged on the shipping, only the value declared.
As for delay in customs, the longest I have had to wait was 5 business days. It also depends on the service used to ship...with Express the max was 3 days and Priority was the 5 days. First Class I have no idea since there is no tracking anyway.
