Two U.S. residents arrested for smuggling firearms
“Our message is clear, firearms should be left at home when visiting Canada. If you have firearms with you, declare them to avoid seizure action and/or prosecution in a court of law. The Canada Border Services Agency reminds all travellers to truthfully declare all goods when entering Canada.”
Lance Markell, CBSA St. Lawrence District Director
Anyone importing firearms and weapons into Canada must declare them and meet all licensing and registration requirements under the Firearms Act.
Failure to declare goods, including firearms and weapons, and other Customs Act contraventions may lead to prosecution in a court of law.
Anyone with information about suspicious cross-border activity is encouraged to call the CBSA Border Watch toll-free line at 1-888-502-9060.
