CB animals and CITES

Hey all.... I was reading a 'certified reptile specialist' workbook (written by the pet industry joint advisory council - pijac) that I borrowed from work, and in it it says that captive bred animals are not exempted from CITES and that interprovincial transport required CITES permits as well as international transport. I was under the impression that CB animals just needed proof of CB status (I have not personally bought or sold any listed animals before). So, is this book right? And if so, how hard is it to obtain CITES permits for CB animals?

various cornsnakes, 0.1 black pine snake, 1.0 uromastyx geyri, etc.
