Exotic pet laws are a municipal issue so it will depend on the city you move to. Most cities have a ban on all venomous snakes and most boids. You'll need to check the particular city's laws to know for sure.
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...

Some provinces restrict various exotics such as alberta, saskatchewan and quebec (sask restricts boids, i think all three of those restrict venomous keeping, and alberta restrict various snakes and lizards.

ontario only has restrictions on native reptiles and certain mammals

I hate hate hate these freakin reptile laws. Since when can the govnt, who supposedly get their power from the people, tell the people they cant keep a freakin snake?! Makes me sick. I know some laws are necessary for conservation, but to say that people cant keep any kind of snake? Laws like that I will never obey. Govnt's have no right to do so, and when they do, they have overstepped the boundaries of their purpose.

Just venting!

The government represents the people, and quite frankly most people dont care about your right to own a reptile. If they think it poses a risk to them, they'll pass a law faster than you can blink. Education is the only cure.

anyone know a site where you can look up these laws, especially in Canada by Province??
