FAQ from Non-Residents and Visitors to Canada

I am a non-resident and want a PAL. What do I have to do?

Non-residents can apply for a Possession and Acquisition Licence. They must be 18 years of age or older; they must successfully complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and test, and they must provide a letter or document from their local Police Service/Government which provides a completed NCIC check. Once they have the necessary documentation, they need to fill in an application, attach the documents, and send it to the RCMP Canadian Firearms Program.

I am a visitor to Canada. Do I need a PAL?

Yes. Starting January 1, 2001, non-residents are required to possess a Firearms Licence to import (restricted and non-restricted firearms) or to borrow (non-restricted firearms only) and to acquire ammunition. For individuals who bring their own firearms into Canada, a confirmed Non-Resident Firearm Declaration ( form JUS 909 EF ) will serve as a license and registration for those firearms indicated on the JUS 909 EF Declaration Form.
Individuals who temporarily bring firearms to Canada must declare their firearms in writing using the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration Form (form JUS 909 EF). Once a Customs Officer has confirmed the declaration and issued a confirmation number, the declaration form will serve as a license and registration certificate, showing that the visitor is in legal possession of the firearm(s).
