    Applied online renewal June 22. Nothing yet. Checked online and still the same message that initial review has taken place. Have called at least 2 doz. Times to see if everything is good with same recording and hangs up. Now birthday has come and gone Mid Oct and still nothing. What can i do? Hunting season is upon us and i thought i applied for the renewal with lots of time to spare. Any suggestions from the group? Forgot to mention i tried to call the Alberta CFO office but apparently they dont take phone calls.

    I emailed a question on September 13th and received a response yesterday (October 17th). 35 days for a response, in case anyone is counting. I was surprised I got a reply at all to be honest (and I had long since answered my own question).

    I tried calling today to check on the status of my renewal - and it didn't even put me on hold. Before you get excited, it just said "we're getting too many calls and can't take yours right now" (paraphrased) and hung up on me. Is that better or worse than what it did before - which was make me wait a half hour or so and then hang up without warning?

    You would think with how flush the government is with our tax dollars, they would be able to implement at the bare minimum a voicemail system (which of course at this volume would be flooded) or a callback system - many companies have this - they call you back when it's your turn in the queue. I suppose being hung up immediately is better than waiting a period of time before it happens, but probably not better by much.

    Long story short, nothing they can do about wait times. Says my license is still in the pile and is pending, even though payment was taken on February 13.

    He also mentioned that they are seeing between 800-1000 PAL applications per day...

    For anyone else wondering what the extension is for the MB CFO, it's ext.8004

    PAL to RPAL Upgrade Ontario

    Received in Miramichi: June 30th

    Online status updated to initial review has been completed and C/C charged: Sept 14th

    Still waiting for it to get processed. I knew for a fact I forgot to put my written name on the back of the picture along with my guarantors. My guarantor just signed the back of the picture with the official stamp for where I took it but simply because my name and guarantor was not written on it they made me send a new picture with that. They received it Sept 20th so now I'm waiting until they open that letter which just got into another backlog.

    *grumble about stupid ban that'll do absolutely nothing for crime rates*

    So do all applicants get a phone call or random? Do references get contacted?
    ok.. time to update:

    Called in to CFO to ask if some references being out of country would be a problem, super nice lady said no and looked at my application, approved it. Oct 5
    Issued (according to the PAL letter). Oct 11
    PAL in hand: Oct 18

    Keep at it guys, you'll get it!
