have you tried any of the purebred Rescue groups? There are a few in Canada - not sure about Albert specifically but you might type in Cornish Rex in Petfinder.com andcheck the National box and see if any come up for your postal code.

Here is a list of approved TICA approved catteries - there is one listed in Alberta but only an email is provided. You might so a search or research the cattery.

Here is a US rescue group. I am uncertain if they would allow you to adopt from Canada but possibly if you yourself were willing to travel there?? I know Siamese Rescue with which I am involved with has what is termed a "Meezer Express" to get Siamese kitties in need to good homes. Perhaps this group also does something similar?

And here is another US site that may be of help:

Good luck!!
