    Ontario Final Update:

    Mailed early January
    Received end of January
    CC charged early April
    RPAL in hand mid October

    In my situation, there was a flag on my application which no one told me about or noticed until late September. So if you get through, don't just ask if anything is "wrong" with your application or if they have an update, ask if there's a flag on it. Something on my application triggered something in CPIC. Once that happens, your application is sent off to Orillia be reviewed and if you're unlucky, it's up to a 2 year back log.

    I did email my MPP and Ontario Ombudsman. MPP's office was initially helpful, but ended up ghosting me completely. Ontario Ombudsman also got back to me for more information, but I was able to get it sorted out myself.

    I appreciate all the tips and updates everyone posted. Good luck to those who are still waiting.

    Hi Everyone,
    I’ve a question. how long does it take for our .0002 PAL to be mailed out once you purchase a restricted firearm & your transfer goes thru.
    Any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    I sent in the application on July 31, 2022, credit card was charged on October 6, and the license arrived via post on October 25 so it took almost three months.

    If no one particularly helped you, how did you sort this out yourself, if it was sitting in Orillia with a long wait? Was the flag legitimate or a false flag?

    Oh I meant that I essentially had to push to get my application through. If I would have just waited for the process to "get to it", would have been a long long wait.

    I took a day off of work and just kept calling x7503 until I got through. The agent who answered said it was still in progress, but when I asked why so many Ontarians who sent in their applications after I did are getting their cards before me, the agent reviewed my file again and noticed the flag. We went through the application, agent said an email will go out to the Officer who had my file to go ahead and approve me. 10 days later, Officer called, reviewed my application again, saw my record was clean and actually approved me.

    I asked what the flag was and was told some of my data matched someone in CPIC. If the original data entry person would have checked the flag, they would have seen that I was not the same person. But Officer said as soon as CPIC gets triggered, they pass it off to the Provincial CFO. But Orillia office is so busy, my file was with another OPP branch. The Officer mentioned the files that do need further investigation are 2 years behind.

    Thanks for the added colour. I guess our odds improve if our first and last names are rather unique.

    Glad you got it sorted out. I am still waiting on my upgraded RPAL application to be opened (been sitting there for over a month).
