Restricted Species

The Ministry of Environment recognizes that there are many species that were legal to hold without a licence under the previous regulations that now fall on the Restricted list.

Restricted species fall in either Division 1 or 2.

Division 1 species are considered overtly dangerous, or have never been legal to hold as pets, and must be removed by November 30, 2021.

Animals currently in the province that are listed in Division 2 are not considered overtly dangerous. They may continue to be held for the remaining life of the animal – only IF the ministry is notified of their presence by November 30, 2021.
