About this service

Is my information secure?

The Canadian Firearms Information System and the associated web services use advanced security measures in order to provide secure e-commerce on the Internet. Through its secure web certificates our solution identifies a web site and encrypts communications between the browser and web server. The security solution used provides strong web security, trusted verification of the web site's identity and strong encryption during browser to web server transmission. This is based on the same technology used by numerous internet banking sites and offers a high level of security.

Individual and business clients are further protected by Personal Identification Number (PIN) and Business Identification Number (BIN) passwords to access their data. There are processes in place to detect hackers and prevent them from breaking into a user's personal information. In addition image verification security has been added to some areas of the website to enhance an already secure service.

Where do I go if I have questions?

Individuals with questions about the status of their firearm licence application or who are experiencing technical difficulties with the online service should contact the CFP's Central Processing Site.
