A brokerage fee is something that a courier charges on ground shipments to cover any duty. The courier acts as a "broker" on your behalf to pay the duty to Canada Customs. The recipient of the package will not see an invoice from Canada Customs. The beef against couriers that use brokerage is that the brokerage fee is much, much more than duty would actually be, so essentially they're overcharging. The recipient must pay these outstanding brokerage fees before they can claim their package.
