  1. Good evening , I have had my non restricted license sense 1988 ? . This last February 2020, I , past my restricted course and sent in the application immediately, complete with the picture and payment as required . I know they received application be cause they cashed the cheque. I am wondering how long it will take before I receive notification / update on my application

    Do I have a renewal application in the system?

  3. Robert Windsor
    My license is shown as possession “Non-restricted 12(6) Handgun.” I mailed the application with a cheque for $60 (the amount shown on the application for non-restricted) on January 31/20 which was received on Feb. 12/20.On Feb. 22/20 I received a Request for correct fee for an additional $20 which I mailed on March 03/20. this cheque has not been cashed to date.
    1) Why is my fee $80 when your application says $60 for non-restricted.
    1) My license expires 2020/04/21. In view of your office being closed because of COVID19 will my license expiry date be valid after expiry date until your office reopens?

  4. You took the money out of my account on April/11/2019. Still no word on my license.

  5. I called about the status of my pal to see how it is going on if they received my paper work, I got threw just fine an the officer was really nice and said they received it an had to do something? I forget I believe something with my picture an it goes through another channel not sure what the name of it is nor what it was called, But depending on how busy they are depend’s when they get it back an then they send it out an I have been waiting 3 month’s. When you take the course the instructor (or) your instructor tell’s you it will take up to 3 month’s to get your licence? I don’t know why they would tell you that for if it ain’t true? cause when my brother did his he got his licence in 2 month’s. I guess it is what it is only in Canada.

  6. Your process to find out where a person’s status on their application for a PAL is not the easiest to do. There must be a way to simplify it (or) hire more people to answer the phone.

  7. I sent my application in October 21st, 2017 and still waiting for my PAL, can someone let me know the status of my application? Its been about 1 year already.

  8. Last April, I have applied for renewal, 5 months seems to be excessively late.

  9. I have sent the application for license 8 months ago. Where is my license? I can’t get through on the 1800#.

  10. I have sent my application over 2 months ago, and cannot log into your site to check status. It Keeps telling me, I am missing information (or) there is no information on me to be found. Tried getting a GC key, that does nothing. Logged in through a financial institution to get key, that doesn’t do anything either.

  11. My application was sent in the middle of march, did you get it, and when is it coming. Why do I need to give a banking name to see how my application is doing. I sent a money order for $60 bucks along with the application.

  12. I sent my application on January 28, 2018 and I have not received a response yet.

  13. I would like to know the status of my application.

    I applied for my firearms license in April and still have not received my permit. My old license expired on May 14 2015. I want to know why you are holding my license back. I talked to an RCMP Constable in the Trail BC. He said that I should have received my license much earlier and that I should contact the Firearms Licensing Office and find out why you are holding my permit back for no apparent reason, except the excuse when I’ve phoned twice Ph. # : 1-800-731-4000. We are busy and you will have to wait your turn.

    I would like to know where my application is and when it will be sent to me.?
