Canada Import Regulations

Due to Covid-19, the Canadian government had an announcement:

Effective December 15, 2021: Avoid non-essential travel outside Canada, regardless of your vaccination status. Travel for the purpose of adopting or rescuing animals is considered non-essential at this time and must be postponed until travel restrictions are lifted.

Canada does not require a microchip or tattoo identification for domestic dogs imported as personal pets or domestic cats. However, dogs under 8 months of age imported under the commercial category (dogs for retail sale, breeding purposes, show or exhibition, scientific research, dogs in ‘special training status’, and dogs destined for adoption and/or animal welfare organization) must be identified by an electronic microchip.

Japan is a rabies-free country so if you import dogs from Japan to Canada, you just need 2 things:

– Proof of the dog’s age (you get this from a veterinarian)

– Veterinary certificate of health

All required import documents will be handled by JP-Pets so you don’t have to worry about anything.
