    Firearms business licence is issued by your provincial CFO.

    This.

    Contact the Quebec CFO and ask for the information package and application for a Firearms business license.

    You will then need to ensure you can operate a firearms business within your community (certain communities will only allow this in an industrial zone (ie: no home business)), get your storage facility inspected to ensure it's compliant, and be prepared to pay an insane amount once your insurance company is made aware.

    This would be the start of a long and expensive journey. Having worked at one of the biggest firearms dealers in Quebec as it was being built and starting out, I can assure you the SQ are very very demanding and strict with their requirements and inspections for an FBL.

    Cash and patience. Nothing happens quickly. Oh ya, and more cash for storage while your stuff waits to be cleared. I brought some stuff in by air, it took 3 days to clear. Cost me $3500 in storage fees for 8 crates.
