Rules about bringing pets into Canada | What’s the Deal?


It’s vacation time, and Sparky’s along
for the ride! [Woof!] What does the CFIA have in common with today’s
special guest? [What’s the Deal?] If you’re bringing pets into Canada, or
returning with pets after an international trip, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency
has a role to play! So, what’s the deal? When you cross the border with your pets,
don’t set yourself up for a delay! The CFIA regulates pets coming into Canada,
to prevent animal diseases from being introduced into the country. What documents will you need? That’s a great question! Dogs need vaccination certificates, or proof-of-age
if they’re less than 3 months old. Is the dog a pet or companion animal? What country are you coming from? Depending on the answers, other rules can apply, and other kinds of pets have different requirements. But the CFIA is here to help! The “Travelling with Pets” online tool
is easy-to-use and provides the information you need before you start your trip. Whether you’re carrying Betty the bird,
Charlie the cat, or Randy the reptile – everything you need to know is just a click away. By plane, train or automobile, keep your pets
safe while you travel. Use the right kind of carrier and watch the
forecast to avoid extreme temperatures. Have your paperwork ready when you get to
the border, so you and Sparky will have a happy vacation. Learn more about travelling with your pets:
