    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.
    No it is a fresh application. That is, no prior PAL.

    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. It changed status to "issued" over the weekend.


    Im happy for you man. I’m in Ontario as well. My application was received an August 15th and CC was charged October 14th. I’m still on the “we have completed the initial review”. These Ontario timelines make zero sense

    Thanks. Yes it doesn't make sense. We also got stuck with the handgun ban unfortunately.

    I can imagine the frustration. Absolutely no consistency in how things are being handled. Seems like Ontario is grossly inconsistent.

    IWS is down this afternoon due to application error. You will get this after you enter all your info and try to submit to see what current status of your applications

    Well, good news to report...I guess it doesn't hurt to check 7-8 times a day on the IWS website...

    I was on my 5th check of IWS this morning, and finally...a change in status!!!

    PROVINCE: ONTARIO
    APPLICATION TYPE: Restricted endorsement upgrade (original PAL issued almost 20 years ago)
    APPLICATION RECEIVED VIA FEDEX TRACKING NUMBER: September 21, 2022
    DATE OF CHANGE IN IWS STATUS: November 8, 2022
    DATE IWS SHOWS AS APPLICATION RECEIVED: September 21, 2022 (so they do backdate it to when they actually received it)
    CURRENT STATUS: Initial Review Completed (on November 8, 2022)
    CREDIT CARD CHARGED (RCMP-CFP GRC-PCAF): November 8, 2022
