The registration thing I believe you're talking about is Age Verification correct?

Basically the community wants to restrict the movement of the "good" airsoft guns in Canada to responsible people who are 18+.

You don't need to register anything. Period. There is no gun license requirement at all. We ARE pretty much playing with toy's after all.

There aren't any walk in stores in Canada per-se. You can go to Canadian tire and get a $80 POS to plink in the basement but that's about all that those are good for. You can also get a Kraken which isn't a bad "newbie gun" but it's recommended you get a gun doc to take a look at it and shim, grease, and replace the bearings on the Kraken before you game it. Or if you're into that mechanical kind of stuff see if you can go to a "gun maintenance training day" or ask a gun doc to show you.

To get the "good stuff" ($350+) you're going to have to get age verified which is just meeting up with a community rep so that they can verify that you're over 18 and you can get access to the classifieds to get a hold of the "real airsoft".

EDIT: You can get gear without being AV'ed and whatnot (BDU's, shooting glasses, chest rigs, etc.). Surplus stores are the best place to look. Also Huang in Oriental Centre I believe stocks upgrade parts for Airsoft.
