Report a public safety concern
Due to the May 18 and May 30, 2022 announcements from the federal government regarding changes to firearms legislation under Bills C-21 and C-71, there has been an unprecedented number of handgun sales and transfer requests which have resulted in an influx of calls to the Canadian Firearms Program and emails to the Alberta Chief Firearms Office.
We appreciate your patience while we work alongside the Canadian Firearms Program to address the backlog. To initiate a restricted firearms transfer, download and complete the application form RCMP 5492 and submit it by regular mail, or email it to [email protected].
For updates on the proposed regulation changes, see Federal firearms updates.
