    I received my competency in July last year, and only got a printout from the DFO. No mention of a card and I still haven't been notified of a card that was printed.

    Apparently the memo said "print competency cards for security guards" - because they are required to carry the competency with them. Some asshole then heard "print competency cards", and now we have a cluster fuck

    No update, but they're only working on applications up to 20 December, according to another member. Once done they'll start on the next batch.

    Does not make sense though to have such a huge backlog. At the rate of the approvals, they're definitely not approving in excess of 100 applications. Surely they are capable of printing 100, if not more, cards.

    It's ridiculous, i received an A4 printout for my competency in July, and applied for my license with it.
    Ive just received an SMS to collect my competency card, 6 months later!!

    How far back are they going with card printouts?

    They have a Backlog getting firearms on dealers names so you can apply. Which if its in Dept 29 is 4-6 months.
    The they take what ever time to approve. Then you have to wait 2-3 months for card after approved. So it seems your looking a 1 year from buying firearm to receiving it currently.

    Thanks CFR
