Before you attempt to import a firearm or weapon, you should contact the Canada Firearms Centre for information at 1-800-731-4000 or, www.cfc-cafc.gc.ca
The following requirements apply to the importation of firearms:
- You must be at least 18 years of age.
- You cannot import prohibited firearms, weapons or devices, including silencers and replica firearms, switchblades and other weapons.
- The process for bringing ordinary hunting rifles and shotguns into Canada is relatively simple and usually involves filing a form in advance and making a declaration at the border.
Although it is possible to bring restricted firearms such as pistols and revolvers into Canada under some circumstances, you should contact the Canada Firearms Centre for specific information. You must declare all weapons and firearms at the CBSA port of entry or they will be seized and you may be subject to arrest.
