Default How many pet cats can I import into Canada?

I'm moving from Australia to Canada soon & I have alot of cats. I've been rescuing them from my street, and don't want to have to wait in Oz til I rehome them all, but also don't want to run into problems trying to bring them to Canada. I know all about the import requirements & will have a pet transport company handle the paperwork etc, but they can't be sure how many customs will allow me to bring in. At the moment it looks like I'll want to bring at least 12! I've got a website up trying to find many of them homes, its at http://www.kittiesinthehood.com but I've only found homes for 2 of the 11+ cats so far & I'm getting worried & would rather take them with me (if I can) than postpone the trip. Does anyone know the answer to this or done something similar? Thanks
For those of you suggesting euthanasia over flying them to Canada, you are ill informed and should do some research re pets travelling!
And I'd never have a kitten born on the street euthanised. I'm obviously a committed animal lover & you guys aren't, so please go waste your time elsewhere!

you would need to find out what the cat bylaw is in the area you are moving too
but overall I would suggest leaving them behind no matter how difficult this may be... there are plenty of cats in Canada who can use your help too (I am in Canada myself)
I will warn you though - its not allowed to simply rescue cats off your street.. if you find a stray you MUST report finding it or you can be charged with theft

ALSO flying is dangerous.. cats are smaller than dogs and such a long flight will be very difficult on them.. although rare there are horror stories about pets freezing while in flight - again something more likely to happen to a small cat than a big dog..

There are also by-laws in Australia in regard to how many cats you are allowed to keep.
The cats you wish to take, are they the ones still out on the street? It may be very traumatic for them, as CF said, for a 17(?) hour flight. Please consider taking then to a shelter.

Hi there...each Canadian province have special requirements, as do other federal departments and agencies such as Environment Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Therefore you need to contact the province you will be moving to to learn if there's a limit on importing pet cats. I've included some links below if you haven't already seen them.

Each Canadian arena has appropriate requirements, and added federal departments and agencies such as Environment Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Therefore, you charge to acquaintance you will be affective to learn, if you accept a pet cat to bind imports of the province.
