Bill C-71

Former Bill C-71

Compliant with Former Bill C-71

Effective on May 18, 2022, individuals and businesses will be required to obtain a reference number from the Registrar of Firearms confirming the validity of the transferee’s (buyer’s) firearms license before transferring a non-restricted firearm.

A reference number can be obtained through Canada’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police Individual Web Services or Business Web Services portals.

Firearms businesses will also be required to retain sales and inventory records related to non-restricted firearms for at least 20 years. The records created by businesses will be held by businesses — not the government — and the police will require judicial authorization to access them.
