Consultations on allowing exports of automatic firearms to Japan and Mexico
Global Affairs Canada is inviting stakeholders to provide their opinions regarding a possible regulatory amendment which could result in the addition of Japan and Mexico to the the Automatic Firearms Country Control List (AFCCL).
The AFCCL is a list of countries that the Government of Canada has deemed it appropriate to permit the export of automatic firearms to, and with which the Government of Canada has signed an intergovernmental defence, research, development and production arrangement. There are currently 39 countries listed on the AFCCL.
The addition to the list would allow Canadian exporters of certain prohibited firearms, prohibited weapons and prohibited devices to submit permit applications for the export of these items to Japan and Mexico. Submissions must be received no later than November 13, 2017.
