The Firearms Reference Table (FRT) is a computer database tool developed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police - Canadian Firearms Program - Firearms Investigative and Enforcement Services Directorate. It helps law enforcement officers achieve their mission for domestic and international policing, firearms tracking and counter-terrorism initiatives by giving them access to up-to-date and comprehensive firearm descriptions and classifications. The online version of the FRT offers the advantage of being updated every 24 hours. This means the FRT Web provides users with records and images which are always current.
Use of the FRT Web is limited to individuals who have been authorized by the RCMP. Authorized users include members of the police community, specific Public Agents and approved firearm verifiers.
If you currently receive FRT information through a DVD which the Canadian Firearms Program produces annually, you are eligible to use the FRT-Web. If you are eligible and would like to register as an FRT-Web user, please email your request to:
