Depends who the ebay seller is - private individual or a licensed business.

If private individual then you definitely pay no tax at all. (Although strictly speaking the Province of Ontario expects you to voluntarily come in and offer them HST on your purchase price.)

If from a business, it depends how they are set up for collecting tax. If they are licensed to do business in Ont. as well as Alberta, then it will be HST.
