The purpose of this enactment is to make the selling of wildlife and wildlife parts an offence under the Criminal Code unless carried out under and in accordance with a licence, permit or an exemption order. The sale of threatened or endangered species or their parts would attract an increased penalty. Such offences would also be subject to the money-laundering provisions of the Criminal Code.
