What is a Firearms or Weapons Charge?


A firearm is a weapon that can inflict serious bodily harm or death through a bullet or other matter. In Canada, there are strict laws against the possession and transportation of firearms. The following is a list of potential offences:

  • Unauthorized possession of ammunition
  • Tampering with licenses
    • False production
    • Altercation
    • False information
  • Non-compliance with Inspection
    • Failure to produce a firearm
    • Failure to return firearm after revoking the license

If an offence is committed the person can be punished on summary conviction, or imprisonment for up to 2 or 5 years, depending on the offence.
