    Pretty sure you can't... might want to ask for advice on a Canadian firearms forum.

    What do you want to get it into Canada for?
    If it is for hunting it is a lot easier than if you are trying to sell it.

    Let me know and I will help you if I can.

    Yes you can ship guns to Canada, happens all the time for competition and hunting.

    Need to contact Canadian Customs.

    Since the poster is Canadian, I assumed he was talking about importing guns...

    I would depend greatly on what type of gun it is, there are different catagories under the Canadian system. Better start with questions to the Ministry.

    You should contact the Canadian Firearms Centre, and Canada Customs first stating what you are doing. E.G., for competitions, for hunting, or are you wanting to buy one for export to Canada? If you want to buy(same applies if it's from a relative's estate and it is willed to you) and export, you would need to have the U.S. dealer or private person to apply for an export licence. They can ask A.T.F. and I believe Commerce Dept. for export licence/permit info. If you are buying, there are Canadian brokers that will do it all for you, for a hefty fee. If that's what you are thinking, try Questar on the web. They are importers/brokers and gun and parts sellers.

    To import to Canada you will need and exporter.
    First though is to find out if one of the many Federal Agencies in the USA has a restriction with that particular firearm leaves the USA.
    Then the exporter.
    Get the Canadian import papers send them to the exporter so he can get the export papers and after that wait.

    Be damn patient it takes time.
