Yes. It is available. Most of it comes from the province of Quebec. The laws are a bit funny right now. You can't buy raw milk, but you can buy cheese made with it. You can drink raw milk from your own cows, but you can't sell it. There are some co-operative farms that allow you to have a shared ownership of a cow and you can take the milk home for your own consumption. Meanwhile, Canada does permit the sale of raw milk cheeses that are aged over 60 days. In 2009, the province of Quebec modified regulations to allow raw milk cheeses aged less than 60 days provided stringent safeguards are met. Canadian Health and Safety laws can be a bit loopy.
