Hi there,Hello fellow Slingshot fans.
I am a Canadian from Toronto. I have been trying to find out just what the laws are concerning slingshots.
Not have much in the way of resources I am using google. So far from the Canada.ca website
all I can find is restrictions concerning transportation of any king of weapon including slingshots
see TP 14628 E - Prohibited Items List.
As for Ontario...
Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves Act, 2006, S.O. 2006, c. 12
current statute December 31, 2016 – (e-Laws currency date)
shotgun, air gun, pellet gun, paint ball gun, slingshot, bow or cross bow. 2006, c. 12, s. 38 (2).
Here you will have to scan the document your self as it is too large and broken into areas.
But in short it looks very much like no slingshots in any provincial park or Conversation Area.
Now to the worst of it. I though the waters were muddy in Ontario law, well Toronto is terrible.
I searched the Bylaws and search term slingshots...
By-law Search Results
No result was found, please refine the search criteria Refine Search was the reply.
I did find that you can not take a slingshot to Canada's wonderland or the Toronto Zoo.
I will keep digging. Its going to be a real slog as Toronto has the most disconnect civic information system in Canada.
I don´t think you have to worry.
We had canadian slingshooters here before and
amazon canada is selling a lot of slingshots.
I guess they would not sell illegal goods on amazon, won´t they?
Metrograde goods, a famous slingshot manufacturer is canadian as well and he mentioned the problem with public shooting... so i guess no shooting in parks or residential areas. Unfortunately i don´t recall the website where all laws regarding slingshots were listed.
