    Canada Post Policies for shipping firearms

    3.3 Firearms (including imitation and replica firearms)

    Please contact the Canadian Firearms Centre at cfc-cafc.gc.ca or by calling 1.800.731.4000 to determine whether it is permissible to ship your firearms.

    When it is determined permissible to ship firearms, they must be shipped as follows:

    Non-contract Customer - Regular Parcel with Signature option.

    Contract Customer - Expedited Parcel with the Proof of Age (18 or 19) option using EST. Visit section 4.3.2 “Mail Addressed to Children” of “Policies” for an age of majority by province or territory listing.

    There cannot be any ammunition in the firearm or in the package. Bullets, cartridges and other ammunition are dangerous goods and cannot be mailed. These items fall under Class 1 (Explosives) of the Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations.


    Customers who wish to ship firearms must:
    • unload the firearms
    • attach a secure locking device to the firearms
    • lock the firearms in a sturdy, non-transparent container, and
    • remove the bolt or bolt carrier from any automatic firearms (if removable).


    Firearms cannot be shipped via air and cannot have any markings on the outside of the packaging. The Customer is solely responsible for meeting all Canadian Firearms Centre regulations.

    You CANNOT ship firearms by Xpresspost! Failure to do so can result in your insurance becoming void! To be able to ship Expedited Parcel you just need to sign up for a free card using a "fake" business. You're allowed to do this as Canada Post itself was the one who told me this route.

    Expedited parcel is only one day faster than regular parcel.

    Expedited Parcel is a guaranteed delivery date (regular is not) plus the first $100 insurance is included.

    Thanks for the info, another tidbit of info would be only the shipper has a right to a claim. The reciever cannot make a claim. I just found that out today. Also if that's the case who do you think should be out if insurance is denied the shipper or the reciever.

    Why can firearms not be shipped Xpress Post? I'm a bit puzzled as to why they want them shipped regular mail.

    Interesting stuff. I've only ever locked restricted/prohibs that have been sent through the mail. Likewise, firearms delivered to me by Canada Post have never been locked...including handguns.

    Something to do with Canada Post not wanting them on aircraft? No idea why... stupid really....

    Did you ask for Xpresspost or did the shipper tell you it would be going Xpresspost? If so you're SOL. If the shipper did it without your knowledge I'd put it on them...
