getting prohibited goods permit

I realize that I'm not age verified at the moment but i am of age, my question is that when I'm looking at airsoft guns a lot of them say they need the prohibited goods permit, how would i go about getting this i checked online but it only gives me the classification of what goes under that license.

thanks in advance for any help

Call the CBSA, they will tell you

As for getting it, don't even bother.

I dont think thats what he means.. I think what he means is not to bother getting a permit. Customs will confiscate your replicate gun if you decide to order it outside of Canada

In a nutshell, you can not get this permit. In order to get one, first you must obtain a Business Firearms License (BFL). You have to apply for it, go through all the inspections, pass the inspections (background checks, physical security requirements) and get approved. If you don't get approved, you loose your application fee. Private individuals do not qualify for BFL's only a legitimate business.

If you do have a legitimate business and a legitimate business need for a BFL, you may be able to apply for a Prohibited Items Permit. These are even tougher to obtain as typically only prop houses for theatre, TV & movie industries. You you somehow manage to win the lottery and get that, there will be a ton of conditions ties to that permit and you will be watched like a hawk.

Even then, CBSA can, and will, detain/seize shippments at will and your permit can be revoked or just not renewed at any time by your CFO.

Long story short, get AV'd and buy in country.

Of course, all of this information is in the FAQ, if anyone happened to be, you know, bored and bothered to look.

The licence is not available to individuals, it's only available to businesses. You have to be a properly incorporate business in Canada with a clearly demonstrated need for such a licence, and "importing airsoft for playing" is not a valid need.

If you need to ask, you're probably not anywhere close to having the necessary qualification for such a licence.
