The Government of Canada announced a temporary import ban on the importation of restricted handguns until proposed amendments to the Firearms Act under Bill C-21 come into force.
This temporary ban means that individuals and businesses will no longer be able to import handguns into Canada, subject to narrow exceptions that mirror those in Bill C-21.
These restrictions will take effect on August 19th, 2022, and will last until the national freeze amendments in Bill C-21 come into force.
