    To purchase or possess a firearm in Canada, a person needs a PAL. A non resident can get one, but unless you're planning on a long holiday, you won't get one quick enough.

    Every firearm, not just Restricted or Prohibited, needs an export permit. These have been known to take awhile.

    "An export permit is required for any class of firearm being exported to a country other than the United States, even if the export is only temporary – for example, if someone takes a firearm to another country to hunt or to target shoot. When individuals apply for an export permit, they must include an import permit from the country of destination and from any other countries that the firearm will be travelling through en route."

    I stand corrected, I've only ever dealt with USA for firearms or antiques so it wasn't an issue. Apologies on the misinformation.

    You can do the full course or just the test if you have experience with firearms and knowledge of Canadian firearm laws.

    I think they stopped allowing challenges in bill C-42 in 2015, but the course is only a day long so not terrible.
