Aerotech E Single use

Does anyone know of anywhere in Canada to get Aerotech E single use motors
(E15 or E30)? Or are they even making these again?

They are made but not legally imported last I checked.

Kinda. They had import authorizations and some other things were not in place but they were not being enforced against so yes they were legal.
When they burned down they were obligated to reclassify and rfesubmit and also some of the laws have changed. That will take time and money and canada sales are a small fraction of US sales. With NAR and TRA crashing the US rocket market on purpose and with CTI developing a rocket market in Canada, that may change very soon.
There are some choices headed your way but the cost of CE marking for example is very as compared to typical sales volumes.
ALL.

Rob, I was in a small hobby store a week ago and noticed they had a few rockets on the wall but there were no motors to be seen so I asked about them hoping they might have some of the elusive Estes E9's in stock as well as some D12-0's that I needed. Lo and behold buddy comes out from the back, (where they keep their paranoia stock) with a pack of D12-0's and he says these are the only E's I got though. He hands me a pack with an E15-7W! Whoa, been so long since I saw one I thought it was a mirage. So I asked to see any other Aerotech he has and maybe I could use some more motors. He had 29mm F50's and F25's. I said I would take them all. Then I though about not actually having anything for the 29mm motors and asked if he had another E15 I could take instead of the F50. He brought out another E15 and I got the impression it was the last one. I left the F50's but may go back later because I'm building a rocket for the F25's and may want to try out an F50. As it was I dropped a 100 bucks and I was out of cash.
I short, check out every obscure little shop you can find to get motors... They are still available but they are pretty scarce. The thing I really want is a 24mm F! It really blows to see the ads from shops in the states that have them and I can't get them without picking them up myself...

My understanding is that all of Aerotechs MR SU motors are on the ERD authorized list, which means importation by dealers/distributors having the right paperwork should be a snap.

For the latest authorized list. It includes AT single use MR, and many of their HPR reloads.
Actually a visit to the ERD site in general would be instructive for our south-of-the-49th friends. One gets a sense of substantially more openness than when visiting the BATFE site.

Marcus: would you care to elaborate on the paperworks requirements and the = process required by Canada for model rocket motors?

You know, I kinda planed to get there and buy them myself at some point but I really don't need them. I honestly don't remember the shops name so I had to look it up. It was in Nanaimo, BC. LEISURE TIME HOBBIES 79-650 TERMINAL 250 753-6221. I really doubt you will convince them to ship so if you are visiting the Harbour City check it out.

Well, It wasn't in Campbell River actually it was in Nanaimo.

I'm not certain of what you mean here.
Do you mean paperwork for manufacturers to get their products on the "authorized" list?
Paperwork for dealers to operate an explosives magazine?
There are *no* paperwork requirements for end users for MR. For HPR, you have to be certified to fly, but that paperwork is handled by CAR.
