SPECIAL NOTE: FIREARMS
The general nature of firearms in Canada may be different than in other countries. Firearms in Canada are generally used for sport or necessary tool for land owners. The use of firearms for self defense is something better left outside of Canada.
If you are a visitor to Canada, as of January 1, 2001, you will have to declare your firearms in writing. The cost to obtain a permit to import your firearms is $50 and is valid for a period of one year. A non-restricted firearm may be imported at the discretion of a customs officer for purposes such as hunting, during hunting season, wilderness protection, target-shooting events, gun shows, or if they are being taken in transit through Canada. If you are importing restricted firearms you need an authorization to transport. You can get an application for an authorization to transport by calling the Canadian Firearms Centre at 1-800-731-4000.
Revolvers: Arrangements to hold Revolvers until you return, will have to be made before you get to most ports of entry.
