There is absolutely no blocks of any NATO participant from transacting with other member states to my knowledge.

ITAR restricted states:
  • Afghanistan
  • Belarus
  • Cuba
  • Cyprus
  • Eritrea
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Ivory Coast
  • Lebanon
  • Sierra Leone
  • Libya
  • Norko
  • Syria
  • Vietnam
  • Myanmar
  • China
  • Haiti
  • Liberia
  • Rwanda
  • Somalia
  • Sri Lanka
  • Sudan
  • Yemen
  • Zimbabwe
  • Venezuela
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo

Canada isn't on that list.

However, as a random person, you have no member rights in NATO.

The restrictions on citizens is in pursuance of various internationally sanctioned motions. Apart from certain places and contexts in the US, not a lot of people abroad have access to the latest military tech outside of military or related entities.
