CITES - Canada
Fellow Canadians, I have done some research on importing a CITES animal (Bontebok) into Canada and received some great info (Thanks Brickburn) on the forms to be filled out at Environment Canada and it seems to be a relatively easy process, but dealing with the government seldom is easy, therefore i was wondering if anyone has had some experience with importing a CITES trophy into Canada?
Okay, another question then. Declaring value of your taxidermy at Canada Customs, would that basically be the taxidermist bill for tax purposes? Just trying to figure out what the final leg of the journey would cost.

The other one they will want (at some offices eg. YYC ) is the cost of the trophy fee or they will impute the value.
Thanks again Brickburn, the taxidermy fee seemed logical and i will keep a copy of the trophy fees as well, just in case.
