    No new updates from the CFP general inquiries line, as they apparently do not have much in the way of direct communication with the jurisdiction officers, so I asked if it's possible to get a number for them.

    The general inquiries officer transferred me and after some more time on hold and a brief conversation with the jurisdiction officer (who really was a lovely lady, certainly the most pleasant Federal employee I've dealt with outside of the National Parks Service), she verified that all my approvals had been completed, just one more box to tick to rubber-stamp it, and then she ticked that box and gave me my PAL number.

    She did say that they're only printing every 2-3 weeks so not to count on a physical copy until January.

    I would recommend this course of action to anyone who's been stuck at the "initial approval complete" phase.
    So do you mean we can call or email them to get the license number and we can use it to order a firearm online?

    If your license application had passed all approval stages, and your license is issued, then it has a number and the CFP will tell you that number if you get in touch with them.

    In my case, my license hadn't been issued before I called, the CFP officer issued it while I was on the phone with her, and she told me my license number immediately after the number was generated.

    Once the license has been issued, if you have IWS access to the RCMP site, you can find out your PAL number under your profile, as well as the endorsements/privileges related to your license.
    CCFR, CSSA, NRA (Life), CPC, CHP

    Online retailers normally ask for a picture of your pal and another photo id to confirm validity. So unlikely you would be able to order online with just the number.

    Many don't ask for a photo. Cabela's for example.
    Businesses can confirm validity online through the CFP portal.

    Just call them (or your provincial CFO).

    Can anyone help?

    Received my pal in June of this year.
    Every time I purchase a firearm, the system never issues a reference number, says call CFO
    The first 2 purchased was a simple phone call and the reference number was issued. My last purchase was in August, called multiple times and I keep getting the same answer, registrar hasn’t approved it yet. It’s now been 5 months, no reference number
