If you are applying for a restricted Possession and Acquisition Licence or an Authorization to Transport a restricted firearm and you are finding a long delay in receiving your documents, it may be because the Firearms Centre does not have proof of your membership to an approved range. Make sure you include a copy of your valid gun club membership when applying for either a PALR or ATT.

Technically you should not have to provide proof of membership to receive a new or renewed PALR, but we know of some cases where processing the application has been held up without providing proof.

Tammi Drapeau and her crew of volunteers lead two full classes of 25 children through the basics of fishing. The windy conditions made casting a challenge, but the kids, volunteers and parents looked pleased with the event. The North Peace Rod and Gun Club provided each child with a rod, real, and some fishing accessories that they took home with them.
