Bringing your Firearms into Canada via the Alaska State Ferry
Bringing your firearm into Canada is a very easy process if you have completed the proper paperwork:

Print and complete three copies of the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration
(CAFC 909) form below

Complete the form but do not sign the forms until you are in the presence of a Canadian Customs officer as he must witness your signature.

If you are bringing more than three firearms into Canada, you will also need to complete the Continuation (
CAFC 910) form as well.

The fee is $50 Canadian for a 60-day Firearms Declaration, which may be renewed for 60 days at a time so you only pay once a year.  Multiple guns = only one $50 payment.  Special restrictions are placed upon persons under 18 regarding weapons.

Once approved, the CAFC 909 form will serve as your license and temporary registration certificate for
60 days
