2022-New handgun law in Canada: In  Saskatchewan, the CRFS is still being provided,  that until the legislation and regulations are passed and their provisions come into force, all existing legislative and regulatory requirements governing firearms remain unchanged. We have no further information at this time nor do we have any timeframes. Upon receiving more information on the legislation and regulations we will then be able to answer any questions.  The Saskatchewan Firearms Office only received the announcement at the same time as the people of Saskatchewan.

2022- The Training Academy is providing CFSC and the CRFSC in Saskatoon and surrounding areas. See our class dates and book your spot. Classes are available on-demand for businesses and private groups.

Here is some information in regards to the Canadian Firearms Centre:


2022-CFSC and CRFSC wait times are a lot better. Be sure to follow guidelines from the Canadian Firearms Center Website for details on new licensing and renewals.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, beginning of 2021, the Canadian Firearm Center was closed. While reduced staff members are working from home, we are told to expect lengthy delays — in both licensing as well as transfers.

In 2020, we are going to experience a backlog of expired firearms licenses like never before. It is absolutely critical that you be able to PROVE that you submitted your renewal prior to expiration.

Renewing online has proved to be the best {and fastest} option, where you can grab a screenshot or print-screen of your submission.

If sending your application by mail, we highly recommend the use of Registered Mail.

During these unprecedented times, it is imperative to submit your renewal early, six to eight months before expiration - at least, and be certain to have PROOF of the date submitted.


As of January 2023, possession and acquisition licenses (PAL) will have a new look. Current licenses will still be valid, and PAL holders will receive the new version upon renewal.

Three versions of the valid PAL cards will be in circulation over the next five years as the Canadian Firearms Program transitions to the new PAL card:

(1) standard cards issued from December 1998 to May 2022;

(2) interim cards issued between May and December 2022 that do not contain a magnetic strip on the back of the card; and

(3) new cards issued starting in January 2023.

The previously issued PAL cards will remain valid until they expire. All three PAL cards contain the required identification and licensing information. By December 2027, the previously issued PAL cards should all be expired, and only the new cards will be in circulation.
