Half correct. You can ship firearms (including restricted firearms) using Canada Post's most secure method*
, Priority Courrier with Signature.
*Canada Post has declared Priority Courrier with Signature to be their most secure method, although it is debateable as to whether it's any more secure than Xpresspost. Therefore, any other method is technically against the law
**. This is only really a concern should your package not arrive and you initiate a claim.
** An individual may ship a firearm by posting it only if
) the firearm is a non-restricted firearm, restricted firearm or prohibited handgun;
) the destination is within Canada; and
) the firearm is posted using the most secure means of transmission by post that is offered by the Canada Post Corporation
that includes the requirement to obtain a signature on delivery.
