Here's an example of using MAPIMPORT with 3rd party shape files.
More information from @MikeZdeb: http://www.lexjansen.com/nesug/nesug11/gr/gr11.pdf, including some details about SHX.

A SHP file isn't a single file, it has 3 other files at least that have supporting information.
If you downloaded the SHP file from somewhere all the files should be included.
By chance are you working with the Statistics Canada Boundaries? You'll also need to project them if you do.
If this is the case, message me with your email address and I'll send you the code that walks through using the StatCan boundaries (CSD I think in the example).
