PostSubject: Canadian Scorpion Laws?   7/14/2009, 12:43 pm

I live in Ontario, Canada, and cannot find out much information on what (if any species) of scorpions are illegal to keep or require any sort of permit or license. Does anyone have this information?

I checked my local by-laws, there is a A BY-LAW TO REGULATE ANIMALS - in which is states,

Snakes, Tarantulas, Scorpions and other Spiders
4.15 No person shall carry or display a snake, scorpion, tarantula, or other spider on
any highway or in any public place or other place to which the public is customarily
admitted except in accordance with sections 4.16 and 4.17.
4.16 A snake, scorpion, tarantula, or other spider may be carried or displayed in:
(1) an educational institution or research facility where such animals are
housed or studied;
(2) an educational or entertainment display, including a circus or zoo, that is
supervised at all times by a qualified handler;
(3) a veterinary hospital or clinic, and
(4) the premises of a pet store which holds a business license with the City.
4.17 Every person who needs to transport or carry a snake, scorpion, tarantula, or other
spider on any highway or in any public place or other place to which the public is
customarily admitted shall, while it is being carried or transported, confine the
snake, scorpion, tarantula, or other spider in a cloth bag which has been placed inside a box made of durable material with a lid that has been fastened securely,
provided that the animal has sufficient air to breathe.

So according to this, and assuming there is no provincial or federal laws/acts, any species can be legally kept in my area?

I live in Canada, more precisely in Quebec, and never heard any laws about them. I have seen shops selling deathstalkers and Androctonus for like 30$, they don't ask for anything whatsoever, of course some are carefull to who they sell. I guess that there isn't really a law about having them, the only thing is that the owner is responsible for any harm they cause.
What scorpions do you have a hold on?? There isn't a lot of species in my market around here, I have to keep my eyes open all the time, in case there is a opportunity that shows up.
