    Trying to get through to the call center and typically getting hung up on. Using option 1-5-1

    Update from Ontario (PAL/RPAL)

    License Approved: August 15, 2022
    License Printed/ Mailed: August 18, 2022

    Still waiting for the actual card to arrive in the mail. I called yesterday about 20 times using menu option 1-5-1 (missing payment on an application) and menu option 1-5-2 (all other inquiries) and my experiences were:

    1) Getting message saying that they are too busy, to call back later and being disconnected
    2) Getting message saying that their offices are closed (despite calling in the 9 AM to 5 PM window)
    3) Waiting on hold just to be disconnected
    4) Waiting on hold to get a message saying my call could not be transferred due to technical difficulties and getting disconnected

    I called back today using menu option 1-5-1 again and I got through to someone but they couldn't help me as they can only take payments and process restricted transfers. Before they transferred me, I asked if I get disconnected and need to call back, what menu options I should use to get to the correct queue. The lady said I basically need to use menu options 1 (English) - 1 (Known extension) - 2501 (Licensing inquiries queue extension).

    I did the above, did not get any of the annoying messages from yesterday, waited about an hour and spoke to an officer that was able to help me. I was informed that the license was printed and mailed on August 18, 2022 and that I should wait another week or two and call back if the card does not arrive by then.

    I asked if they are able to provide me with my actual license # over the phone as I said that I would like to sign up on a waiting list for the range. The officer provided me with the license number over the phone and I was able to sign up for the range waiting list and go shopping online while I wait for the card to arrive. Having the license number also allowed me to login as a license holder on the website.

    Yeah it says that. Just got off the phone. She said no errors and it's on the way to CFO. No ETA provided as to how long that will take.

    CFO for Alberta both are backed logged 3 months as they are just starting on June applications, it took mine a few months as well,
    but it is in the mail should have it this week or next as it does nothing at this moment with this import ban but still great to have it.

    just be patient and it will be approved i had past criminal charges and i was able to pass, the 2 CFO in Alberta are amazing and understanding they are just overloaded.
