Don't get stuck at the border...


anadian Customs will generally inspect all firearms brought into Canada. As long as you do not bring a handgun, there should be no problems. You must declare any firearm you are bringing in.

There will also be a $50 (CAD) fee required to buy a Firearms Declaration, a temporary permit to take your gun into Canada. Other firearm restrictions are in the works. You will need to complete the form. Sign the form when you get to Canada Customs. If you have any other questions regarding the matter, call the firearms office: 1-800-731-4000.

The form is available from the Canadian Firearms Program website, please print off this form and fill it out, it will save you time at customs.
