If you import a dewat, you must possess and register the item as it would be classified in Canada, and then it gets verified by as a dewat, and the classification is changed. So, basically, you can only import a dewat if you have a PAL for the non-deactivated version of the gun. Once it's in Canada, it can be done with as you please, just don't try to commit another crime using it.
I looked for these statutes in the CC can you point them out?

or is the classification under the firearms act?
