Some members will have received letters from the RCMP advising them of changes to the conditions of their restricted or prohibited license. If there is some confusion about these changes we will explain it here.
Recent changes to conditions in licensing mean that a specific Authorization to Transport are now required to be requested from the CFO for the following purposes when transporting a restricted or prohibited firearm:
- for transport to a port of entry (ex. the border)
- for transport to a gun show
- for transport to a gunsmith
- for transport to a peace officer (ex. for surrendering or examination)
There is NO change to conditions allowing the transport of restricted or non-restricted firearms to gun clubs via direct route as before.
These changes are in response to a new OIC tabled on July 7th that is explained here.
