So you need an ATT to transport Restricted Firearms

Prior to the update, an RPAL’s attached ATT included:

1.      Transport of restricted firearms to any licensed range for target shooting

2.      Transport of restricted firearms to a port of exit, in order to take them outside Canada and from a port of entry.

3.      Transport of restricted firearms to and from a gun show.

4.      Transport of restricted firearms to and from a business that holds a license authorizing it to repair or appraise prohibited or restricted firearms.

5.      Transport of restricted firearms to and from any place a peace officer, firearms officer or chief firearms officer is located for verification, registration or disposal in accordance with the Firearms Act and Part III of the Criminal Code.

Now, after the update, an RPAL’s attached ATT includes:

1.      Transport of restricted firearms to any licensed range for target shooting

2.      Transport of restricted firearms home from the place of purchase

If you wish to transport your restricted firearms for any purpose other than going to a shooting range or club, you must now apply for a specific Authorization to Transport (ATT). Restricted and prohibited firearms require an ATT to transport the firearm to a gunsmith, gun show, port of entry, and police or peace officer.

Ultimately, these changes do limit you for repair or sale, but don’t really affect your day to day use of Restricted Firearms, since you’ll most often be taking it to the range.

This amendment came into force on July 7, 2021.

Requesting an ATT from the CFO:

Remember, if you’re doing anything that isn’t an ATT attached to your RPAL you’ll need to call into the Chief Firearms Office (CFO) and request an ATT. This process doesn’t take long. The longest part will be waiting on hold to get to someone to talk to. Once your call has been answered just ask for an ATT for whatever you need and after a few simple questions (like when and how long you need to transport firearms for, and where you want to take them), you will have your ATT emailed to you.

You can reach the CFO at 1-800-731-4000 and follow the prompts or email them at CFOON@cfp-pcaf.ca
