Update on firearms licensing backlog

From the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (with a tip of the hat to Glenn Meads):

In July, the OFAH wrote to Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Bill Blair (see letter below) to express concerns with the backlog of firearm licence processing and the potential for it to prevent hunters and sport shooters from using their firearms.

We received a response from the Director General of the Canadian Firearms Program (CFP), which you can find here.

The CFP also reported to us thorough e-mail correspondence that they are now currently up to date on the printing of firearm licence cards.

If you have not received your firearms licence card, and you get the message stating “Your application has been processed and your licence has been issued” when performing a licence application search though the CFP’s online Individual Web Services, the CFP suggests you contact them by calling 1-800-731-4000.
