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.
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.

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.
I'm not certain of what you mean here.
Do you mean paperwork for manufacturers to get their products on the
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
