That is correct, you cannot import it. But that doesn't mean it's illegal here. It's because it is potentially explosive and violates dangerous goods shipping rules. I do believe it is available here. Check out some wood suppliers ( not Home Depot). If they don't have it they can probably tell you who does.

All that means is it cannot be shipped by mail. But neither can any spray pain containing solvents!

Nitrocellulose lacquer is most definitely NOT a banned finish, its easy to get at most hardware stores. Hell I think Home Hardware here where I live has lacquer in a spray bomb.

Lee Valley also has it available...at the stores. They have Deft laquer which is reknowned for being easy to lay down...as far as spray cans go. If I'm not mistaken you can get it at Canadian Tire as well.
