My POL (which is the same as a PAL now) is going to expire in about 5 months. Do they send out renewal papers or do you have to do something online?
Thanks

Definitely do it online. No notice will be sent. They will wait for you to become a paper criminal.

Do it online, and once you submit the application, send a copy of a range membership if province requires. They won't call asking for it either. Helps speed stuff up.

My last renewal only took 12 days. From the time I submitted it, to the time in my hands. I just took a selfie up against the basement white door. Previous one, I did 5 months before expiring, got a passport style photo etc, mailed it in. I had to call them up saying, I didn't get my PAL and It's soon to expire. I got that 2 weeks after it expired.

Thanks for the info. Interestingly, at 4:32 AM today, I received a Email from CFP Online with a renewal link! Talk about good timing....:-). I'll get on that this weekend.

Have you renewed online before? I'm wondering how they got your email?

I don't think so. Email might have been on the paper work I filled out years ago. Seems odd they Emailed me a few hours after I asked the question, maybe just paranoid :-).

NS CFO is quick. If you didn't send the range membership, you'll be waiting for awhile. I was told that by someone else, speeds stuff up, because if you don't. They won't contact you to say that you must provide till you probably call back in a few months, wondering where it is. That what happened with that guy. So It was a PSA for anyone doing online renewals.

Last year they wouldn't complete a transfer, because my membership was 30days to expire, and I don't have a valid club membership. Well 30days to expire, isn't expired. I said isn't there record of another gun club? Oh.... I'm a member of 2 gun clubs. Ones 75$ a year and doesn't expire till Dec, the other 150$ and Expires End of Aug. So Im always over lapping.
