Yes, but only to a business like BC Firearms Academy. If you have a handgun that needs a home, consider contacting a training facility.

Conditions of Transferring Firearms and Other Weapons Regulations. The Government of Canada brought into force amendments to the Conditions of Transferring Firearms and Other Weapons Regulations, changing the regulations on the transfer of handguns in Canada.

Under these amendments, a Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) will only be able to authorize the transfer of a handgun to an individual who:

    1. holds an Authorization to Carry (ATC) issued under Section 20 of the Firearms Act and needs the handgun:
      • to protect the life of an individual or other individuals pursuant to an Authorization to Carry (ATC) issued by a CFO under section 20(a) of the Firearms Act; or
      • for use in connection with his or her lawful profession or occupation pursuant to an ATC issued by a CFO under section 20(b) of the Firearms Act.

or

  1. has provided the CFO with a letter from a provincial or national sport shooting governing body indicating that the individual trains, competes, or coaches in a handgun shooting discipline that is on the programme of the International Olympic Committee or the International Paralympic Committee.
Applications to transfer handguns to individuals that do not meet at least one of these prerequisites cannot be processed; clients should not submit an application if they do not fall under one of these exemption groups.
