    Congrats!

    I called the ON CFO this morning to inquire if CFP has forwarded my app over, as my CC was compromised and had to call CFP to update my CC, CC was charged on September 29 during my call to CFP.

    My app is sent to central processing for photo scan then background check by CFO, hoping to get the approval shortly.

    It was a pain to call in!

    Ontario pal/rpal timeline

    App received - July 25
    Cc charge - sep 29 (initial review complete)
    Licence issued- Oct 6 or 7

    Called Ontario CFO at 7:05 this morning and was surprised I was put in que. Call was answered at 9:25 and I was able to get my pal #

    Super lucky with how fast the processing time was when it started . Here’s hoping marstar starts the transfer before anything bad happens. I had pretty much given up having any chance of owning a handgun.

    Sept 14th - CC charged for both applications.
    Sept 14th - Status changed to we have completed the initial review of your firearms license application.
    Oct 3 - I called just to ask if there were any issues with my license and what stage it was currently in.
    Oct 4 - Your application has been processed and your license has been issued.
    Oct 5 - My brother's status has also changed to; Your application has been processed and your license has been issued. He didn't call the CFO.

    No references called. No cards in the mail yet.
    This is of particular interest to me as I am one of the likely few who are in the same situation as you. Got my original PAL in 2004.

    Took and passed my restricted course in late August of this year
    Got my stamped paperwork back by mid-September
    Sent my completed application, paperwork, updated photo by Fedex overnight in mid-September
    Fedex tracking confirmed delivered Sept 21, 2022
    Been checking my status daily (I know, I probably shouldn't) on IWS, and it doesn't even show they received it (last status was my last PAL renewal in 2018). Which I guess means they probably haven't even opened the envelope. Or it fell behind someone's desk...

    My restricted instructor said typically the straight upgrade to RPALs should not take as long as a regular PAL. But a fellow range member who was in the same position as me many years ago said it took about the same time

    Thankfully my regular PAL doesn't expire till 2024. I am certainly hoping I get my upgraded card by then...*gulp*

    Finally got thru to the Ontario CFO today asked them why some applications are approved in less then two weeks while others are taking months and they have no answer. I don't mind waiting my turn but the applications should be processed in the order received. Was told approval could take up to 9 months and to check back with them in 4-5 months if I haven't heard anything. The system in broken and the government seems fine with it that way.

    BC Update
    New PAL/RPAL Application received on: 07-April-2022
    Credit Card Charged after 3 months on: 07-July-2022
    Application approved after 6 months on: 07-Oct-2022

    Called many times to 1-800-731-4000 - 1 (English) - 1 (Known extension) - 9530 (The Chief Firearms Office (CFO) of British Columbia) and always got hung up(we apologies not answering).
    Today mistakenly typed extension as 9531 instead of 9530 and placed on wait for only 5 minutes,
    very pleasant lady answered and ask for my Application Number, then she ask me to send her by email my citizenship certificate copies.
    While waiting on the line for another 5 minutes, she told me All Approved!!
    Now I see status has been updated on the website to:
    Your application has been processed and your licence has been issued. If you have not received your licence within 2 weeks please contact the Canadian Firearms Program Toll Free number (1-800-731-4000).

    Today Exact 6 month since application received.

    Good luck to all!

    Yes call them with the 1,1, 9530 for bc cfo.
    Morning seemed to be the best time to call. After 12pm you won’t get through on the call they are way to busy.

    YES!

    I also called and was told the same BS....this infuriates me to no end. This is the service (or lack thereof) that so many of us have just come to accept from our bureaucrats...disgruntled and miserable government workers who get angry with you when you (a taxpayer who pays their salary) have the nerve to ask why their service is complete and utter trash.
