I hope you didnt order that lower receiver through a site/store outside of canada. When they ship it to you it wont make it past customs as its a restricted item.
If you ordered it from a local retailer then you'll be fine.

You'll find that getting AV'ed is worth it if you are looking to expand your collection. Most 'canadian legal' sites will only sell guns that have plastic see-through parts, and while you can easily cover them with a spray of paint, they dont do so well in the durability department. Not pointing towards your KJW but there have been reports of other gas guns cracking the plastic bodies after a while because of the constant recoil/pressure forces. On both the classifieds and the retailers here you'll find non-clear, non-plastic guns that are more authentic replicas that perform much better.
Of course if you choose to you can remain non-AVed and still browse sections of this forum. Just throwing this out there since you live in Vancouver it shouldn't be hard to find an AV rep. There are people here who live away from the more concentrated airsoft regions and have had to drive hours to meet up with a rep.
Alternatively, you can find a local game happening and show up, there are usually AV reps attending who can verify your information on the spot.

Just thought a new store opened up in Vancouver or something. I'm familiar w/ all the online retailers and such but haven't had the urge to purchase anything from them as of yet (No one has the RS Type 97B in stock) . As for Gorilla surplus and Poco, like I said they're surplus stores, anything they have will be limited in selection and not of the best quality. That and Gorilla is just a horrible store imo.

As many have said before, the best bet is to get AV'd and stick to purchasing from retailers within Canada as there are a number of import restrictions in place limiting you to what you can or cannot bring across the border. Unfortunately airsoft is one of the things you can't bring into Canada w/o authorization etc. Oh and from what I know of the classifieds, there's a greater selection of whats available plus the forum is great for learning more about airsoft so just read the FAQs, guides, etc..
