An Act to amend the Firearms Act and the Criminal Code and to make a related amendment and a consequential amendment to other Acts

SUMMARY

This enactment amends the Firearms Act to simplify and clarify the firearms licensing regime for individuals, to limit the discretionary authority of chief firearms officers and to provide for the sharing of information on commercial importations of firearms.

It also amends the Criminal Code to strengthen the provisions relating to orders prohibiting the possession of weapons, including firearms, when a person is sentenced for an offence involving domestic violence. Lastly, it defines “non-restricted firearm” and gives the Governor in Council authority to prescribe a firearm to be non-restricted and expanded authority to prescribe a firearm to be restricted.

Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:
