Non- Restricted 


What is the latest news on the Long Gun Registry?

 On April 5, 2012, Bill C-19, the Ending the Long-gun Registry Act, came into effect. The key changes are as follows:


Removal of the requirement to register non-restricted firearms

Destruction of the existing non-restricted firearms registration records

Allowing the transferor of a non-restricted firearm to obtain confirmation of a transferee's firearms acquisition licence prior to the transfer being finalized

Important Notice


Until further notice, due to ongoing litigation, Quebec residents are required to register non-restricted firearms with the Canadian Firearms Program.


It is important to note that the new law does not change the requirement for all individuals to hold a licence in order to possess a firearm. The licensing, safety training and safe storage requirements for anyone who uses or owns a firearm continue to be in force.


The legislation also does not impact registration requirements for restricted or prohibited firearms.May 15, 2009
Government measures that may affect some firearms owners

The Government has extended three measures to encourage compliance among firearms owners for one year. The measures are:

  • Extending a fee waiver for firearms licence renewals or upgrades
  • Extending an amnesty which allows individuals with expired licences or in possession of unregistered non-restricted firearms to take steps to bring themselves into compliance
  • Allowing eligible holders of expired Possession-Only Licences (POL) to apply for a new POL

These three measures will be in effect until May 16, 2010.


Please keep in mind that all of these measures affect long guns (non-restricted) firearms only.

All restricted firearms must be registered and no amnesty is applied to them.
