How Long is the Waiting Period for Receiving my PAL?

How Long is the Waiting Period for Receiving my PAL?

Image result for person waiting by mailbox waiting for your pal to                                       arrive ?

Don’t worry. The RCMP Firearms Program reports an average wait time of 45 days for PAL applications to process. There is a 28 day mandatory waiting period included in that timeframe.

If you are waiting for a registration of a firearm it can take 30 days.

If you have not received information concerning your application within those time frames, you can call the RCMP Firearms Program at 1-800-731-4000 and one of their client representatives will check the reason for the delay. If it is a renewal you are waiting for be sure to have your firearms license number handy as you will be asked for it as well as for other standard identification.

can i take the core course without a pal?

You bet! Having Possession Acquisition Licence is not mandatory for completing the Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education program. But you must be able to prove to your CORE instructor or examiner that you have competed 8 hours of firearms training such as the CFSC.

can i purchase a firearm if my pal hasn’t arrived yet?

No. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get geared up! Check in to our site regularly to check out deals at local sporting goods outfitters.
