The Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) is the only licence available to new applicants aged 18 or older.
- You must pass the Canadian Firearms Safety Course before you can apply for a PAL.
- PALs are renewed every five years.
Firearms Acquisition Certificates (FAC) issued under the former law were considered to be licences. They are expired; you must now get a PAL.
- Issuance/renewal of a PAL:
- $60 (non-restricted)
- $80 (restricted)
- Replacement: $25
