Hahaha, I saw your name and freaked out thinking someone hacked my account or something! Well, welcome anyway! I'm not one of the official message board members, but i thought I'd welcome you anyway! (I just thought that our similarity in names was funny!) I'm in the fox world too, which species are you thinking about getting?

Hi,

I'm in Ontario. I'm pretty sure Nova Scotia is one of the provinces with a province-wide ban on exotics.

Hi, and welcome. I believe Veralidaine is correct about it having a ban on all exotics. Sorry to break the bad news. I know that Quebec allows red foxes to be kept as pets but only certain colors.

Glad to have another fox lover here.

Here is the excerpt from Nova Scotia's Wildlife Act;

Wildlife in captivity
62 (1) Except as provided in this Act or the regulations or any other
enactment, no person shall keep in captivity any wildlife or exotic wildlife.

Which can be found here; http://nslegislature.ca/legc/statutes/wildlife.pdf

Also, even if you move to a province where there isn't a provincial ban on foxes (Ontario, BC, Quebec if you have a fur farm, Saskatchewan if you have a captive wildlife license), CFIA has a ban on importing foxes so unless you can find a Canadian breeder (Which I don't think there are any), you technically can't get one.
