    I got my RPAL in 2009 but due to circumstances, let it lapse. I only had one long gun so gave it to a friend to hang on to until I got my PAL renewed. Finally in a place to take up target shooting like I originally intended. I sent in the whole application again, I still had my PAL number so put that on and marked it as a renewal. I sent it about 3 weeks ago. Nothing showed up online yet so I called today. I got a very pleasant person that told me to call back in two weeks if I don't see it move online. I did ask them if since it was a renewal, if I had to go through the 28 day waiting period. She said yes. This is contradictory to what I have read elsewhere. It is a full application package again so maybe they just sort it in to the wait pile, even if it's a renewal. Anyone have more info on that? Also, any recent reports on wait times from BC?

    You have about 28-35 days for it to show up online. Maybe a week or two to get it issued after that.

    It's been 7 weeks from putting it in the mail box. Still waiting for them to open the envelope.
