Clarification of Authorization to Transport!

INDIVIDUAL HAS Long Term ATT

If they have a valid ATT, and as long as they are transporting the firearm in the province, the conditions of their LTATT are attached to their PAL card, no matter if they have a new-issued license or not.

INDIVIDUAL DOES NOT HAVE Long Term ATT

The CFC requires a copy of range membership ONLY for new purchasers of Restricted firearms.

Short Term ATT

For business members

No short term ATTs are required to be applied for or issued.

For private individuals

In a private transfer, the buyer does not require a STATT to pick up their firearm after a transfer is approved. The seller does require a STATT to drop off the firearm with the buyer. The changes that bill C-42 ushered in only cover the buyer, not the seller.

E.g. If Bob sells Joe a handgun. After the transfer is approved, Bob requires a STATT to drop it off at Joe’s house. If Joe picks it up from Bob’s house, he does not need a STATT.

In summary, Short Term ATTs are still required if you are;

  • Moving
  • Transporting a firearm out of province
  • Transporting a firearm as the seller in a private transfer
