Get yourself a varmit license, and you should be good on all bases for non restricted/prohibited firearms.Answered my own question after some digging.
Q. Do I need authorization to transport my firearms from one location to another?
Any time you personally transport a restricted or prohibited firearm within Canada, you need an Authorization to Transport (ATT) from the Chief Firearms Officer of the province where the firearm is located or where it will be entering Canada. You do not need an ATT for firearms that are being shipped by licensed carrier or for non-restricted firearms that you are transporting yourself.
But I don't even need a varmint license if I'm only transporting my 12gauge. I'll be buying a small game anyways for woodcock soon anyways, and migratory for early geese. Won't be long now!!for anything greater then a 22 caliber rifle you need to have a membership card, this acts as your transport permit for the rifle. But remember this transport permit is only valid on direct routes too and from the range
WrongI think some people are "over-reading" into this.
To TRANSPORT a non-restricted gun (rifle/shotgun), you don't need anything except having it in a case with a lock on the trigger.
To CARRY a rifle/shotgun in your arms in the woods, you need the proper hunting license. Now a varmint license only permits you to carry caliber 0.23 and smaller rifles. So you can transport your .308 all day, but you can only use it at a gun range.
Hand guns need a permit to transport, as stated above.
