Gun Owners Moving to Canada

This information is intended for Canadians who have been living out of the country and who are returning to Canada with firearms, or non-residents who are moving to Canada with firearms.

You cannot bring prohibited firearms or other prohibited items, including replica firearms, to Canada. For purposes of Canadian law, replica firearms are devices that resemble a real firearm, other than an antique firearm with near precision but that cannot discharge projectiles or that can only discharge harmless projectiles.

Restricted firearms are only allowed for an approved purpose, such as target shooting or as part of a collection. They are not generally allowed for self-protection.

You must be at least 18 years old to be able to bring a restricted or non-restricted firearm to Canada.
