Import a bird from the US to Canada

Hey all,Has anyone bought a bird in the states and had it shipped to Canada? And if so what was the procedure. I checked online and it seems that you have to own and be in possession of the bird for 90 days prior…not feasible. I found my dream species at a breeder in Florida and I am in Vancouver Canada…Thanks

I don’t know but what’s your dream bird that can’t be found in Canada Mr. Darcy ?You’ve got me very curious…

If you lived in the US and had a pet bird that was a cities 1 or 2 and you wanted to take your personal pet with you , it’s not that big of a deal. Anything else is.Yes there are opions, but that is the basics.where there’s a will ,there’s a way.Legally in your situation it could take years if possible, however i know little of your situation.

After doing some googling and calling the Canadian Border Authority, it appears that if you have not been in possession of the bird for 90 days prior to bringing it into Canada, you will need a permit to do so. Since I called the Border Authority, they gave me a number you can call for more information. That number is 1-800-461-9999.For an application to import a live animal: http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/ani … erme.shtml

Yes and you also need an export permit from the US,Good luck, FWS might not be at work,and it’s had to get anywhere with them when they are at work.

Always happy to help. And besides, it gave me a reason to practice my French.
