Lots do, but it is crazy expensive, especially if you plan on buying less than $500 of fish at a time. Have you considered one of the many Canadian shops that ships within Canada? What sort of fish are you looking for?

I was looking into getting plants shipped up from the US, not worth the paperwork, you need 2 permits, they need to inspect the plants, you end up with a bag of mulch.. I assume there are similar permits required for live fish.

I don't know if there are any places in Canada that ship live freshwater fish, tho there are a couple for saltwater.

You need to look at the miscellaneous link....and even that is really far from complete....I was just in that shop a couple of hours ago (literally), and I can tell you that they have all sorts of barbs, livebearers, catfish, tetras, goldfish, oddball fish, bettas, killifish, etc.

Again, let me know what sorts of fish you are looking for, and I can help you find them.

Some of the best prices in the country...plus no PST or GST added.
