    Just got back from my local gun club, and word going around is that the feds are the ones that are holding up sending New Pal - RPal applications to local CFO's.
    which we all need to call the CFO and make sure that they are sending your file, as the RCMP was told my Liberals to hold back New Applications & Transfers.
    Local Gun club transfer times up to 2 months. But good news once Pierre is voted into the Conservative Party, heard that he wants to calls for a No Confident Vote is Fall.

    Personal accounts are so varied... some people get their licesnce in under 5 months. Others it takes 9....

    Ive been checking my credit card for a charge everyday for a month now. Anyone else similar dates?? and situation?

    Ive called many times. The lady just says its expected to be a long delay. Nothing to worry about... Please hooooooooooooooooold...

    Maybe I can help on what to expect because I sent my application on march 1 or 2nd, and they received it by march 4 and I didnít get a credit charge till May 28 and then I havenít heard anything except the generic message online. I did call the other day and asked whatís going on. If They need any other information that can help speed it up. They said no everythingís good on my app they donít need any other information that itís sent on to my CFO in bc. Iím thinking since I applied for pal/rpal with all the new rules, trying to be put in, it might end up taking longtime because theyíre probably wondering if they should give me both or pal only since there wonít be any use of rpal of the law comes into affect. (Just guessing)

    Also, when I called the lady she told me that itís in the final stages I donít know really what that means. I asked her. What does it mean? She said its in progress basically so final stage i Guess means in progress or with the cfo. No references have been contacted.

    Iím sure itís a #### show with all this new Legislation.

    I would wait maybe a month and then call and I called earlier in the morning thatís the only time I got in contact with them.

    Iím stuck wondering if I were to be denied would it still take this long because I did have run ins with police nothing major just some weed was found and Highschool fight 12 years ago Iím hoping if Iím going to be denied it wouldnít take this long.

    BC CFO requires club membership, I think. If you haven't provided proof of membership with the application it may be a reason for delay. Otherwise, who knows.

    Just spoke to Alberta CFO, just to inquire and the nice lady was saying she has to resign my case back to cfo
    And she asked me what range I was apart of, told her, but she could not say why she had to reassign back my file to the cfo.
    Wonder if they are starting to hold back on approving new applications.

I know they say that to everyone, so hopefully this time they mean it and I'm not going to be caught in a pattern of being told "It'll be coming soon, promise!" each time I call lol
    Any updates on this? I'm curious about how they're treating those of us who have answered yes to something in section C.

    Not great. About 9 months now. Received Dec 6, charged Jan 18, sent to CFO around March 18. Still being reviewed.

    I was able to get through to the CFO line a little while ago and it was pretty frustrating. The agent reiterated that there were no notes or outstanding pieces on my application so it should be done soon. I told her very politely I'd been getting told that for months but it feels like something is wrong, and nobody is giving me any information on how I can remedy it. That I can't resolve an inadequacy in my application if nobody tells me about it.

    She expressed that she understood and that she'd leave a note for the person assigned my application to contact me about it. She admitted, it had been in their hands for an awful long time for no notes to have been left about the file. That was about a month ago.

    On the other hand, I haven't heard from my MP's office in awhile either. At our last contact they were expressing how frustrating it was because the Alberta CFO was just absolutely ghosting them. I won't bother them though unless they have an update, they're swamped with more important immigration stuff.

    I don't mind that my application warrants additional attention, but it seems like that isn't what's happening. If they haven't even opened the application to say "Hrm this doesn't look good I need more notes from their doctor" after nearly half a year, I'm not optimistic about this getting done anytime soon despite being told optimistically no notes is good news for an application with personal history boxes checked.

    Dam, that is crazy, I was on the phone with the CFO Alberta and I was told that they had to resign my file again which makes no sense, and I ask if you can please rerate, she could not....

    That's so frustrating. I'm sure they think they're being helpful when they tell people things like this but "resign your file again" means nothing to people who aren't working for the CFO.
