Basically in Canada,

A replica Airsoft gun is only legal for import if it shoots a 0.2g 6mm BB within 407-500FPS. At this range they are classified as uncontrolled firearms.

If it shoots under this range, it's a replica firearm, and is prohibited.

If it shoots above this range, it's a controlled firearm and you need a PAL and firearm registration.

For more legality info, please see

*Corrected*Anything hotter than 500FPS and you'll need your firearms license. I also think the "not for civilians" tag is misleading, since owning a prohibited goods license doesn't invalidate you civilian status. Neither does being a full time soldier qualify you for easier access to airsoft guns.
