Default PAL turnaround time

My nephew mailed his PAL application out on September 19th. Will he see it back before November? If not I guess me or another card caring person would have to accompany him if he wants to hunt.

If it is his first PAL, he will be luck to have it by the end of November.

My first time took 11 months from when i shipped it. When i reapplied for my restricted it took 3 weeks. It would be safe to assume he will not have it.

Well there's a mandatory 3 month wait from when the feds receive it so I'd say not looking good.

Two months is the quickest from what I have read. Mine was about three last year. I have heard they are busier at this time of year.

It is a good idea to keep calling them, respectfully, to check in.

X2, the online renewal was easy. For the photo I just took a selfie with my phone, had it back in a week and a half

New applications generally take much longer than renewals. Check out this ongoing thread from gunnutz - 141 pages of people discussing this. :-)

The mandatory wait time is 28 days, not three months.

The wait is often the longest in the summer/fall, with so many people applying just before the hunting seasons open.

Oh ya, my bad. It took 3 months for mine to come in including the one month wait time.

On October 11th I applied for my PAL renewal online. I didn't check my mailbox this week (Oct 29-Nov 2) until Nov 1. My new PAL was there - must be some sort of record?

Default Had my PAL stolen

I applied for a replacement PAL after it was stolen. Received it within a month after applying, I was surprised.

When I mailed in my 1st application I got in in about 45 days. I just renewed mine online and I got it back in 13 days.

FWIW I just renewed my RPAL online. Received it in 16 days! I almost got warm and fuzzy feelings for the government for a minute.

My application was received mid Sept and license was issued 40 days later. A lot faster than I thought it would be.

Man I am jealous of you guys, I did the online renewal on August 10th thinking I would have it in time for Nov 1. Boy was I wrong. Its gone through the initial processing and according to the crusty lady at the RCMP its in front of the chief firearms officer now for the final approval. I'm supposed to call back after november to check in again.

Those of you that got it in a few weeks, I'd buy a lottery ticket if I were you.
