I need several statistics for ownership of exotic pets in Canada. 
Statistics needed include demographic/geographic distribution. If this
can be specified further into reptiles, that would be ideal.

So for example, say you find that 4 out of 5 canadians owns a pet, 2
own a dog, 1 owns a cat, and 1 owns something "other", that would
work, but further breakdown of the "other" category would be ideal.

As well, I need this information broken out by region, telling me
where people who own reptiles or exotic animals are most likely to
live (ie, 20% live in Ontario, 30% live in Quebec...)

As well, I need to know what age groups are more likely to own exotic
pets (reptiles specifically if possible).

Hello  Krisgrodin,

I located the following statistics regarding pet ownership in Canada.

Percentage of Canadians that have 1 or more dogs.
Percentage of Canadians that have 1 or more cats.
Percentage of Canadians that have another type of pet 
Percentage of Canadians that don?t have pets

I can provide the same information for each of the following locations as well.
Atlantic Provinces 
British Columbia

Unfortunately I did not locate specific exotic pet or demographic information.

Would my findings be of your interest?

Thank you,

Thanks Bobbie7.

Actually, I really will need this to be broken down to show what
percentage of canadians own reptiles specifically, as I have to
exclude animals such as rabbits, ferrets, etc., and where they live.

And I definitely need to have it broken down by age group.
