    I wonder if canada you can get an aerobatic "box", its what acro pilots do so they can practice for air shows or competitions. Most all of that stuff is done low to the ground.

    No, most of that stuff is NOT done low to the ground. And not all acrobatic pilots have the Low Altitude Waiver required for low altitude flight. I don't know whether or not an FAA approved Low Altitude Waiver is effective in Canadian airspace.

    Yea it actually is if you want to do air shows or competition aerobatics. Not sure if Canada does air shows or not but if they do they would have to have a waiver for pilots performing at such shows and for their practice.
