    UPDATE BC: RPAL Renewal

    After many many unsuccessful attempts to get through to the BC CFO's office I was able to get through today. I took the advice of a previous post (Extreme22) and just relentlessly called today. After about 90 minutes I was able to speak to a human being. They were actually very polite and very helpful. They were able to finalize my application and my license has been issued!

    Application submitted: April 9, 2022
    Application received: April 9, 2022
    Card charged: April 9, 2022
    License Issued: Sept 23, 2022

    Best of luck to you all. Based on my experience I can confirm your best course of action is to contact your CFO if your application seems to be stuck at Initial Review for months on end. After all, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    When I did call the CFP the lady told me that my file is in the hands of the Quebec CFO, I did request if it was possible to call them.. She told me that she was able to transfer me to them only if I have been waiting for a very LONG time... But online you can easily find their extension number because it seems to be the same number but you need to use the good extension associate to your CFO.

    ==================
    The Chief Firearms Office (CFO) of Quebec : 1 800 731-4000 Extension 7005
    The Chief Firearms Office (CFO) of British Columbia : 1 800 731-4000 Extension 9530
    The Chief Firearms Office (CFO) of Ontario : 1 800 731-4000 Extension 7503

    ==================

    You have nothing to lose, Try
    Thank you so much!

    I was waiting at "initial review completed" for like 3 months. Kept getting hung up on when I phoned the general number. Phoned the BC CFO office directly using this extension. Got hung up on a few times, but kept calling back and talked to a nice lady who approved my application on the phone.

    Applied March 3rd - Approved September 26th!

    I didn't even have to ask. See verified my identity and then ask for a few minutes to review my file. When she came back she told everything looked good and my application had been approved and finalized and to expect my card in 2-3 weeks. With that said, I had applied nearly six months prior.

    For BC dial the 800 number, then 1, then wait for the blurb, then 1 again, then 9530. I got hung up on the first 30 or more times I called. I eventually got on hold and after about 20 minutes on hold I was able to talk to someone. They were very polite and helpful.

    Nope. I just asked for the status on my application and explained that I had phone previously to fix a payment issue. She put me on hold and when she came back told me she was able to just approve it. I checked the web services and it does indeed say approved.
