Check with your transporter, treat it as a real gun and you'll probably be fine.

However, you should just express post it to your destination, since it will save you a lot of hassle and actually cost less than the surcharge you'll face at the aeroport.

Be advised, some carriers will charge you extra for a "firearm". Air Canada charges an extra $65. I know it' snot a real firearm but the carrier will treat it as such and could bill you accordingly.

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?

Yes, because canada inbound international flights still have to pass through customs, which will result in the usual CSBA buttsecks.

Domestic flights are doable, but still, don't try to sneak an asault weapon replica unto a plane, I swear I saw a porno start with thar premise once.

Ship the gun to a friend/hotel/local ASC member, less expensive and les hassle.

True more expensive on a plane but it will get there when you do. Explain it to the agent what you have the sit back and enjoy the flight.
I have no issues placing it on the plane.
