    PAL renewal in the COVID Pandemic

    I am wondering if a person should renew early and what will happen if this shutdown continues, will it cause delays? What will the future of our legal status be if our current PAL expires?

    You can always renew online. To me if you send in your application, you've done your deligence

    I believe the CFP has already shut down and iirc the ccfr has suggestions on their site

    Having your guns at home will be ok, but you cannot take them out to play.
    From the Manitoba CFO when they took more than 6 months to process mine.
    They hurried up when I told them I was going hunting regardless.

    In the midst of dealing with the pandemic gun license apps/renewals are pretty far down on the priority list in the civil service.
    The CFO licensing people are probably redeployed doing other things or at home.
    If you don't have a PAL now that's not going to change in the near future.

    I heard similar last time I got in a disagreement with my renewal. They periodically mailed me notices about forfeiting all my firearms, but when I called they’d inform me it was OK so long as my application was in...

    People who acquire guns legally create a paper trail for Blair's gun grabbers to follow when the time comes (SOON).
    That's why criminals use sources that are "off the radar" so to speak.
    The Canadian PAL is a guarantee of a knock on the door in the not so distant future.
    Without a doubt the PAL database is an electronic confiscation list.
    Some seem to be in a big hurry to get their names and addresses on that list??????
