    You basically need to...

    1. Be Canadian
    or
    2. Live in Canada as a permanent resident
    or
    3. Have a business or organization in Canada
    or
    4. Be the Queen of England or a descendant

    Can you buy a .ca domain name from someone who lives in Canada, like can they transfer it to you?

    Unless you live in Canada or own a business in Canada your basically SOL as far as I know. There is a strict process for registering .CA domains and contracts need to be signed.



    http://www.cira.ca/en/officials.html

    Information in regards to .CA registrations.

    CIRA stands for Canadian Internet Registration Authority

    If you know somebody in Canada, I think they could register it for you.

    This is from GoDaddy:
    Who can register .ca domains?
    Applicants must meet the Canadian Presence Requirements, http://cira.ca/en/documents/q3/CanadianPresenceRequirementsForRegistrants and only the following individuals and entities can apply to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) http://cira.ca/ to register a .ca domain:

    Canadian citizens
    Permanent residents
    Legal representatives
    Corporations
    Trusts
    Partnerships
    Associations
    Trade unions
    Political parties
    Educational institutions
    Libraries, archives, or museums
    Hospitals
    Her Majesty the Queen
    Indian bands
    Aboriginal Peoples
    Governments
    Trade-mark registered in Canada
    Official marks
    You can view a complete list and explanation for each individual or entity, as well as the CIRA Policies, Rules, and Procedures document at cira.ca/en/cat_Registrar.html.

    If the domain name was registered in the University of British Columbia (UBC) registry before November 8, 2000, you satisfy the Canadian Presence Requirements unless the UBC registrant no longer exists or you transferred the domain to another registrant.

    .ca domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. You can register .ca domains for up to ten years.

    I am not sure at all about what I am about to say, but if you have a canadian citizenship and live in another country you might be able to. Then again, I am 20% sure.

    Sorry, to register a .ca domain with us you don't need to be a Canadian Citizen.
