From ReptileHQ

It is illegal to collect any native herps in Ontario with 2 exceptions

Both of these involve owning a valid Ontario fishing licence:

1. Common Snapping Turtle (Chelydra serpentina serpentina)
2. Bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana)

From chondro python

well see it is ilegal to catch a wild animal and sell it as a pet. I was herping and caught a snaping turtel and lone behild a forset ranger saw me and ansk what my intentionds were I said I just wanted it he said nothing and said dont go over bord.
Seems that the specimen you had in hand was pretty much legal to collect and was probably assumed that you had the Ontario fishing licence by the officer

these laws aply to ppl that set nets and stuff
Actually.. animal protection laws usually apply to everyone.
Man.. if I had that train of thought while herping for eastern indigos.. I would be seriously up ---- creek without a boat.
