* Only non-restricted firearms (ordinary rifles and shotguns) may be
imported for hunting or wilderness protection.

firearm into Canada. Minors may use a firearm, only under the direct and

you must attach form 910
Non-Resident Firearms Declaration Continuation Sheet, |
Déclaration d’armes à feu pour non-résident feuille supplémentaire
to list the additional firearms.
This does not apply to visitors that have registered their guns in Canada and
own a valid Possession and Acquisition License (PAL).
Although the declaration should be filled out ahead of time to save
time at the border, it should not be signed until the signature can be
witnessed by a customs officer. Once the customs officer has confirmed
the declaration, it serves as a temporary license for the visitor and as
a temporary registration certificate for the firearms listed on it.
A confirmed declaration only authorizes the person who signs it to
have firearms, so although there is no limit on the number of firearms that
can be declared on a declaration, people who come as a group each need their
own declaration unless they will only be using the firearm under the direct
and immediate supervision of an authorized adult.
A confirmed declaration costs about $50 (CDN) regardless of the number of firearms
It is valid for 60 days or until the visitor leaves Canada, whichever comes first.
However, it can be renewed multiple times within a 12 month period at no additional cost.
To renew a declaration on a return visit, you need to show
the original declaration to the customs officer and get it re-stamped, the fee
is waived only if the visit is completed within 12 months of the initial visit.
To renew a declaration for a prolonged stay, they can contact the provincial
Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) |
Contrôleur des armes à feu (CAF)
or calling 1800-731-4000.
A confirmed declaration will enable a visitor to obtain ammunition while in Canada.
In addition, up to 250 cartridges may be imported duty-free for hunting purposes.
Can I bring ammunition with me for a hunting trip in Canada?
