Possessing or Acquiring Replica Firearms

Individuals may keep any replicas that they owned on December 1, 1998. A licence is not required to possess a replica firearm, and it does not have to be registered. However, individuals cannot acquire, make or import a replica firearm. If a replica firearm is taken out of Canada, it cannot be brought back in. Businesses may possess, acquire or import replica firearms only if they have a valid Firearms Business Licence that allows them to possess prohibited devices for an approved purpose.
You are wrong.

As quoted above. Any other replica firearms are Prohibited Devices - and are illegal to possess, acquire, and transfer. If you own a replica firearm that was released after 1998, it would then be physically impossible to obtain before 1998 - and thus, illegal.
