While in Ontario we do have laws governing such things the sad truth is our MNR have not the resources or money to enforce them. Legal or not a blind eye is often turned. The only way for you to find out is to contact your Fish and Wildlife people on Monday when their office opens. The laws might be on-line if you've got the time to wade through them.
Another reason to not move live captured animals too far is that introducing them to a new area is very likely to be a death sentence for them. They don't know the area, where dangerous roads are, where food and water are, plus a resident population of their own species is likely to fight them. Our MNR has guidelines on far an animal may be moved.
Hopefully your wildlife people can educate that lady on how to not attract the critters to her yard in the first place. Good luck.
