    Is it legal to ship seed from the US to Canada? Or do need a permit? I am wanting to ship some Sarrecenia seed.

    To the best of my knowledge seed are okay to send so long as they are not of an endangered species (i.e. S. oreophila)

    As Pyro mentioned as long as it is not CITES 1 or Federally Endangered. It would then depend on Canadian import regulations.

    I think it is legal. i dont know if the endangered seeds are allowed, but i think seeds are allowed. seeds don't contain infections and deseases like plants do. also, it will be hard to recognize seeds in mail, so it wouldn't be reasonable to add some law to prevent seeds.

    What you want to do is illeagle here in Canada.

    Nope.. Canadian import laws say you can't do it.

    Zongyi, you would be surprised what can be transported on seeds, you'd also be surprised what has been regulated. Impractical has nothing to do with it, it's what is neccessary that gets done.

    I was mistaken earlier though, you need more than a phytosanitary certificate here is the link
