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
Print and complete three copies
of the Non-Resident Firearm Declaration
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.
The Adobe Acrobat Reader is required to read the
PDF versions of these forms. Try the
Adobe Acrobat Help if you do not have this program.
Submission Information The Non-Resident Firearms Declaration (Form
CAFC 909 EF), and its continuation sheet (Form
CAFC 910 EF) must be presented in triplicate, unsigned, to a
customs officer at your first point of entry into Canada.
