Since September 2nd, 2015, the Authorization to Transport permit is no longer required to go to your shooting club. It is now integrated into your Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). Moreover, it is no longer necessary to go to a gunsmith shop or to another shooting club, by example for a competition. However, it is important to apply for the Authorization to Transport permit to move the firearm from your old address to your new address. It is also MANDATORY to apply for a Authorization to Transport permit to transport the firearm from a province to another and to get to the border (or points of exit/entry, such as an airport).
