    Judging from other posts I have best case scenario a month before approval, but upwards of 6 months compared to the worst cases. Nothing shows up online yet or cc charge, so who knows.
    My status changed to under review and cc was charged yesterday, Nov. 3.
    Took me by surprise. I see a lot of wildly different things can happen at this stage so my fingers are crossed.

    So the only way you found out your application was actually received (as evidenced by the IWS status change) was yesterday when your credit card was charged? So previous to that, when you said your application was received September 12, that was based on your own tracking number, not IWS indicating it was received? And that status only changed yesterday?

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.
    Update got InTouch with Ontario CFO office by email today to check status. Received a response within 15 minutes that I've been approved. So keep trying it seems to make alot of difference in who you get ahold of.

    What was your status before contacting Ontario CFO by email, and when did RCMP receive the application?

    The application was sent Xpress post and was marked received by them Sept 15, and nothing showed online until Nov 3 on iws, I noticed the cc charge first, went to iws and saw initial review complete, application received Sept 15. So they do mark the day they actually get it.

    That's strange that they don't just mark the receipt date when they actually receive it, even if they are not working on it yet. That way people at least know it didn't get lost or something like that.

    Wentworth I believe is accepting new members. Too far from me or I would join.

    Ontario R-PAL (fresh application) update:

    Assigned an online Application Number (November 1, 2022) on the RCMP Individual Web Services Site (IWS).

    Application received on September 9, 2022 on IWS. Incidentally, the application was delivered by Canada Post on September 9, 2022, so they appear to have some sort of tracking system when the applications are received.

    Status (IWS November 1, 2022): "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."

    Credit card charged November 1, 2022: RCMP-CFP GRC-PCAF

    Current status (IWS November 6, 2022, Sunday evening): "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)."

    Strangely, I checked IWS on November 4, 2022 after the close of business on Friday evening. It still showed the IWS status from November 1, 2022. Somehow it changed status to "issued" over the weekend.

    Just curious, did you already have your non-restricted PAL?

    Here's my timeline:
    Received Aug 30 2022
    IWS and CC Charge: Oct 26 2022
    Current status Nov 7: "We have completed the initial review ...."

    I called last Thursday just to confirm there was no additional info required or any corrections to be made and they told me CFP approved it and it was in the Ontario CFO's hands for final approval which apparently has a backlog of 5 months. They told me not to call back before March 2023.

    Wild timeline differences with some applications versus others. Bizarre.
