Hi all, I looked over the posts, and it looks like everything is US-oriented. I'm currently in Nebraska, where gliders are legal, of course, and I'll be moving to Vancouver, BC, around Christmastime. I looked up the regulations, and it appears that as long as your exotic pet can't eat someone, it's legal in Canada (so I think the greater Vancouver area is safe, as long as they haven't become Yogies overnight). I was just curious if anyone had any tips about owning gliders in Canada, plus the move.

Will I need to get some sort of...papers for them? I didn't get my two gliders from an owner, but rather rescued them from a friend-of-a-friend, who got them similarly, so there's no official paperwork for them (like proof of neutering, if that's an issue, which has been done on my boy, or shots history). The only real vet stuff I would have are nail clipping bills, and one time I took them in because I thought they were sick (but were fine!). I wasn't sure if this would be an issue at the border.

Other things on my mind are just getting them re-acclimated to their new home, which I know there's lots of resources around here for, and for the move itself (we'll be driving). I'm sure finding a small animal vet shouldn't be too difficult (Vancouver's much bigger than my current town of residence), though that's on the top of the list.

Any suggestions and ideas are welcome and appreciated!

You will need to contact the USDA to make sure you follow the protocols on your side of the border and they need a vet check within so many days (I think it is 10) of coming across the border. You will also need to contact the CFIA on the Canadian side of the border to find out what needs to happen there. There will be paperwork and vet documents required. You also might want to check the by-laws in BC as they are currently undergoing a major change in laws concerning exotic animals and your Gliders may not be allowed.

Gliders don't need any shots and are not carriers of diseases like rabies. You should go to the roll call and post about your move as there are several members here that live in Canada. I think most of them are in the Ontario area, but Canada just the same. As far as the trip, if you can travel during the day while they sleep, it will probably be easier. You can put them in a bonding pouch and not have to worry about them being up & around. If you will be traveling at night, there are several carriers you can use so that they can be out. You can use a pop up kennel with them in a pouch so they can get out if they need too but are still contained whether you travel day or night. Here are just a few examples:

No, your right, they wont need any medical treatments or tests or anything, its just a paperwork thing. The vet needs to just look them over and give you a document that has to be brought with you to customs. You definitely need to contact the USDA and the CFIA though to make sure you have everything in order BEFORE you leave because you do not want to get to the border and realize that just because of an absence of one paper your Gliders have to be left behind. Don't just show up thinking you will get through, there are documents that have to be presented and there is a vet check, its just routine but it does have to be done within the time allowed and the paperwork from it is very important.

I didn't know about the paperwork, that's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much! I'm not positive, but I believe the change in legislation was made to include the big cats, etc., though I'll certainly check to see if they're working on being more restrictive.

But again, the border information and paperwork is very good to know, I hadn't expected it, so thank you!

That traveling cage looks great; we will be traveling during the day, so that should be more convenient for everyone involved. However, we'll be staying overnight at hotels (probably two nights), so something like that would be good to have on hand for once they do wake up. Who knows what nooks and crannies they could get into in a foreign room.
