Federal government develops plan to buyback firearms


The federal government has developed a plan to buyback firearms from Canadians that is part of the ban on assault-style firearms, like AR-15s.


Since May 2020, the federal government has prohibited more than 1,500 different models of assault-style firearms.


The government has published the proposed price list, which details the compensation that owners would receive when their firearms are bought back.


Additionally, Bill C-21 was recently introduced which includes a national freeze on handgun ownership, new “red flag” laws to stop domestic violence, and tougher penalties for organized crime.
