6.5 What kind of documentation does your country require prior to authorising an export of SALW to another country?
a) An end-user certificate (EUC) from the importing country. [No response]
6.6 When exporting, does your country place any restriction on re-export of SALW? NO
There is no provision in Canadian legislation to regulate subsequent transfers (reexports). However, end-use assurance documents are expected to include declarations that the imported goods will not be re-exported for any reason or, alternatively, that any re-export or transfer would be in accordance with the export control laws of the country of the end user.
In addition, for items falling within the scope of the Automatic Firearms Country Control List (AFCCL), there are specific prohibitions which include causing or assisting any shipment of specified items from Canada, or any place, to any country that is not included on the AFCCL.
6.7 Does your country verify or seek to authenticate EUCs or other types of end-user documentation provided? YES
6.7.1 Details: [if yes]
EUCs and other documents may be verified on a case-by-case basis via consultatations through Canadian missions or other sources.
