    Default CITES - Canada

    For the Canadians on the Forum

    Just got off the phone with CITES in Gatineau and even though your animal may be listed as a CITES animal (Bontebok) depending on the country of origin you may not need to have an import permit as is the case if importing from RSA. This seems to be a change as before i left they required an import permit when i called. Now a letter will be issued from the CITES office stating the nil requirement for a the import permit, and this will accompany your shipment.

    This is nothing new. These are the requirements for each CITES appendix as found here Environment Canada - Nature - CITES - Permit Requirements

    Appendix I

    International trade is generally prohibited.
    菱owever, trade may be possible for captive-bred or artificially reproduced specimens and in such cases as scientific research and Pre-Convention specimens.

    Specimens to be imported into Canada must be accompanied by:
    病 Canadian CITES import permit
    病 CITES export permit issued by the exporting country

    Specimens to be exported from Canada must be accompanied by:
    病 Canadian CITES export permit that will be issued once the relevant CITES import permit issued by the Management Authority of the importing country is received.

    Appendix II

    肘nternational trade is possible, controlled by permits.

    Specimens to be imported into Canada must be accompanied by:

    Specimens to be exported from Canada must be accompanied by:

    I should also note that as far as different countries requiring different permitting (import permits) this only applies to populations that are Appendix II in some countries and Appendix I in others, such as Caracal and Argali. In this case Appendix II rules apply to Appendix II populations and Appendix I to Appendix I populations.
    The journey is the reward.
