Export permit for hunted animal parts or products: information sheet

General information

This form is to be used when applying for a CITES permit to export parts or products of hunted animals (mounted animals, skin, bone, meat, claws, etc.). This is not to be used for hunting trophies exported on behalf of a hunter. The application form for hunting trophy exports must be used in that case.


  1. Complete all applicable sections accurately and legibly. Incomplete application forms will not be accepted. Attach additional sheets if necessary.
  2. Ensure that copies of supporting documentation are clear and legible.
  3. The application must be signed in order to be processed. Electronic signatures are not accepted.
  4. Replacement Permit - If this is a request for a replacement of a previously issued permit, the original copies of the previous permit must be returned before the new permit can be issued. Provide a clear explanation for this request for a replacement.
    • On the application form indicate -No Change- in those sections where the information has not changed from the previous application.
  5. For the permits to be sent by courier, a courier company and account number must be provided. NOTE: Courier service is not available from every CITES Permit office in Canada.
  6. Service Standard - When the request is for the export of a polar bear trophy, allow up to 80 calendar days for the processing of a complete application. For all other species, allow up to 14 calendar days, once the complete application has been received.
    • Note: An application is deemed complete once all required documents have been submitted to the permitting office.
