Delivery in Canada
Shipping within Canada is generally permitted. There are a few exceptions so a check must be done before release.
All countries set their own requirements and these may also vary depending on the species and type of item, a thorough check must be done for every order shipping out of Canada. The documents required can be split in two groups :
CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten the survival of the species. Trade controls are critical to wildlife management on an international level. To learn more about wildlife management and its trade regulations in Canada, you can consult our page on this subject.
A species covered by CITES must at least obtain an export permit from the originating country. This applies to any parts and derivatives of the animal. Depending on the level of control demanded by CITES and the destination country, an import permit may also be required.
An item of a species covered by CITES typically requires the use of a specialized customs broker or forwarder to ensure that all export and import steps are properly followed.
Countries can also require a variety of other documents such as veterinary or sanitary certificates, taxidermy/dressing certificates and/or certificates of origin.
