Illegal use or possession of a weapon offences are treated very seriously in Canada. Conviction of a weapon owner or someone in possession, may result in a lengthy criminal record, confiscation of all firearms, and prohibition from owning firearms in the future.
Most firearm offences have mandatory minimum sentences starting at least at one year, with minimums of up to 7 years of jail time for subsequent offences.
On May 1, 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made it more difficult to own a weapon, as a total ban on 1,500 makes and models of military-grade “assault-style” weapons in Canada, effective immediately was announced.
A full list of the firearms that have been banned is available through the Canadian Gazette.
