According to this, Section 91(2) under Possession Offenses, there is an 'except replica firearm' bit.

If I read the Criminal Code correctly, possession of a replica firearm is not illegal, however transportation or fiddling with one, is.

edit: CFC website (link above) also mentions Minor's Possession License, additionally, it mentions that no license is required to possess a Replica Firearm.
