    I'm in ontario and submitted my application online on april 1st. When i check my status all it says is application successfully submitted..

    I called the rcmp office a few times and was told my application is with the ontario cfo and they have no idea how long it will take.

    This morning I emailed the ontario cfo and had a reply within an hour saying they are approving my application and to expect my card in the mail in 2-4 weeks. Makes me think if I hadn't sent a message they would have just left my application on the pile.

    Nope, squeaky clean. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt because of the background checks, I only have been living in Canada in the last eight years.

    Tomorrow is week 18. Was hoping to go hunting at least once before my cancer spreads and I'm hospital bound. Just got 3rd cancer diagnosis in less than a year. Blast those covid vaxxes...turbo-cancer is real!

    I believe you will go hunting at whatever time, as you want.

    The CFO just sits on applications for no reason apparently, please call the number online on the RCMP firearms program website and inquire about your licence as to where it is stuck and if you can provide more info.

    I did not hear anything or see any changes for 7 months, finally reached out to them, apparently they called one of the references who didnít pickup or return the call and they never followed up, I got that cleared up and had my licence in 15 days.

    What e-mail address did you sent your mail? Did you only ask them for the status of your application? I called RCMP today and I had exactly the same response as you had on the phone.

    Miramichi received my application on the 24th of March. Since then, it's been showing "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."

    It's almost the end of September. Been roughly 185 days since anything has happened. Although a few months ago, I got a letter about the card that I used. They were unable to charge it or something, so I corrected that, and sent that back to them.
    Since then, I've been eagerly checking the mail and the application status. Was hoping to get my license at least sometime before 2024 before college and work get in the way. Spoke with them on the phone at least twice.

    My application process was exactly the same, submitted May 1st I received my card in the mail a week ago....10 days after emailing the CFO directly. I was very surprised to get a response at all. I guess a polite email could help anyone waiting on approval.
