Import/Export of Fur Farm Animals and Products

Due to the nature of diseases and parasites, it is possible that at any time a complete ban on the import of fur farm animal species may be imposed without notice. As a result, producers are encouraged to contact the Livestock Branch of the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture to check for any status changes, and to do so before purchasing any animals.

When transporting fur farm animals or their products for sale, the following is required:

  • Date of sale;
  • Name and address of the seller;
  • Name and address of the purchaser;
  • Description of fur farm animals or products, including species and quantity; and
  • Signature of the seller.


  • You must have a licence to import live fur farm animals, fur farm animal semen and fur farm animal embryos.
  • Import licence applications should be received no less than 45 days before the date of importation.
  • The importer must immediately report to a Ministry of Agriculture Game Farm Investigator (1-306-961-0762) the death of any imported fur farm animal that dies within 30 days of import. The importer, upon the request of the investigator, must have an examination and complete necropsy done by a licensed veterinarian or a veterinary diagnostic laboratory, to determine cause of death (costs of necropsy will be the importer's responsibility).


  • A licence is not required by Saskatchewan to export fur farm animals and products.
  • It is the responsibility of the exporter to understand all requirements of the importing jurisdiction when exporting fur farm animals and fur farm products from Saskatchewan.

To obtain either an import or export licence (if required by the importing jurisdiction), please contact the animal health program officer:
