    The only other option I can think of is to transfer all my firearms to a trusted family member. That however presents its own set of challenges.

    Hindsight, I should've moved to Alberta just long enough to renew there.

    This is all a little messed up.
    It would almost certainly be a waste of your time to go, few offices have front-facing spaces tand you wouldn't be let into whatever floor of the office building they're working in. If you end up going do report back though.

    AB isn't faring too much better these days too. Lots of delays from our CFO, they're a wasteful, slow, unaccountable bureaucratic mass everywhere.

    For AB, there are only 2 cfo that are 2 months behind they are now starting on march
    They have a big back log, if you call the main number then 1-1 2065 you will reach cfo office in Alberta
    I had to call multiple times and was able to get my file approved, it’s sucks there waiting time,

    Yes I did came today, I’m still in shock lol but thankful, even though I can’t purchase the firearm that I want
    So I’m hoping that Pp fights this temporary ban so that local gun shops can restock and still continue
    Do not want to end up like Red Dawn with no access to firearms, yea no thanks turduea

    Wondering if anyone else has had this issue or can provide a suggestion of a course of action.

    I submitted my renewal application on February 13 of this year. I still have not received a new license and on the website it just says "We have completed the initial review of your firearms licence application. If additional information is required, you will be contacted. Please check the status again at a later date."

    I sent a snail mail letter to the CFO office listed on the Firearms program website on July 23 inquiring about status but still have not heard back. When phoning, it just says "we're experiencing higher than usual call volumes" and hangs up.

    Help?

    Unfortunately I too had that issue, the day I was off work I spent it calling to I got through, I had maybe 5 hang ups and 6 disconnects but I finally got through to cfo, just unfortunately you have to keep trying, it’s a pain in the ass but you will get through
