My GF is Canadian. I figure at some point we will go visit her home town (Northern Ontario). What am I up against if I drive across the border and I want to keep a firearm in my vehicle?

Also, is there a basic overview of what Canada calls "restricted" and "unrestricted?"

The other guys hit it, but just for reference, if you're just coming up to visit, you can't bring up any firearms. If you were coming up to hunt, or you were in transit to Alaska, it would be different. But you're SOL.


I figured as much. My GF is former Canadian military though.. I wonder if she already has a PAL... I'll have to ask.

I don't know about anybody else, but if I'm doing some cross-country driving, I feel safer having a weapon in the vehicle. If I wanted to cross into Canada, are there places where I could safely check a weapon before crossing the border and pick it up on the way back?

Yeah, in most places. Where would you be crossing? I only really have experience at the Alberta border crossings.

I'm not sure, probably at Deluth. But perhaps heading to Toronto at Salt Ste Marie. I wonder if there are places to stow things that are more or less recommended? Boy I bet those places are under surveillance if there is.. huh?
