Special Business Bulletin No. 93

Bill C-71 will affect the Ceská Zbrojovka (CZ) firearms in your inventory in one of three ways:

  • they may become prohibited,
  • they may become restricted, or
  • the classification may stay the same.

Because not all CZ firearms will be impacted by changes in their classification, businesses will need to determine if their firearm(s) will be affected by these changes.

Bill C-71 also lists a number of specific Swiss Arms (SA) firearm that will also become prohibited.

If you own CZ/SA firearms, the steps below can help you identify whether your inventory of firearms is affected by Bill C-71. They explain the grandfathering requirements and how to avoid being in illegal possession of a firearm.

Step 1: Determine the classification of your business’s firearms

Refer to the self-assessment guide to determine if Bill C-71 affects your CZ firearm.

If your SA firearm was listed in Bill C-71, it will be classified as a prohibited firearm. Please proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: Transfer, disposal or destruction of your CZ/SA firearm

If, due to Bill C-71, your CZ/SA firearm is expected to be classified as prohibited, you should consider, by June 30, 2018, whether you wish to transfer, dispose of or destroy the firearms in your inventory. Once the firearms become prohibited, only businesses with prohibited licence privileges would be able to keep them, and only for a prescribed purpose.

If you choose to transfer your CZ/SA firearm:

  • Business owners will continue to be authorized to transfer any and all impacted CZ or SA firearms in their inventory to properly licenced individuals, until the relevant provisions of Bill C-71 come into force. For an individual owner to be eligible for grandfathering certain requirements must be met by June 30, 2018.

If an individual does not wish to grandfather their CZ/SA firearm, they may:

  • transfer (i.e., sell, trade, give) their CZ/SA firearm to an individual or business (including museum) with the appropriate licence privileges,
  • export the firearm to another country (in accordance with legal requirements), or
  • have the firearm turned in for disposal (i.e., destruction).

*Please note that only individuals, not businesses, are eligible for grandfathering.

The proposed changes to classification status for CZ/SA firearms listed in Bill C-71 will come into force on a date to be determined by Governor in Council. This date is yet to be determined. As such, businesses will be permitted to continue to sell any and all CZ/SA firearms in their inventory up until these provisions are brought into force. Prior to the provision being brought into force, all CZ/SA firearms continue to be classified as they currently are. An individual who purchases an affected CZ/SA firearm after June 30, 2018 will not qualify for grandfathering privileges (unless they possessed the same class of firearm on June 30, 2018) and will have to legally dispose of the firearm after Bill C-71 provisions come into force.
