Changed Regulation regarding Importing Hunting Trophies into Canada
September 2013, Volume 11-4

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency informs that importing requirements for hunting trophies have changed in Canada. In simple form, wildlife trophies that enter Canada must be in a fully taxidermied state meaning ready to mount on a wall or fully mounted (no other taxidermy needed.) Any skins, skulls, horns etc that are NOT fully taxidermied will have to be sent to a CERTIFIED TAXIDERMIST (CFIA APPROVED) to be fully taxidermied before clearance will be issued. They will be treated like quarantined shipments.  The most up-to-date policy is “Importation of Integumentary Tissue”, available online.
