Export Controls - General

Canadian policy requires a permit for the export of SALW to any destination other than the United States. For export permits to be issued, exporters must present a copy of a valid import authorization from the country to which the SALW are destined. Import authorizations may take the form of End-Use Certificates, International Import Certificates, Firearms Import Permits or Import Licences, depending on the policy and procedures of the destination state.

Canada's policy for the export of SALW to the United States requires that a permit be obtained only for the export of prohibited firearms. All permanently exported firearms will require export permits to all destinations once the Export and Import Regulations of the Firearms Act enter into force. Military goods exported from Canada and destined for end-use in the United States do not require export permits.

[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
