Well, up to a point: Article.

I find it interesting to see how other Common Law countries deal with this issue. As ever we see liberal dweebs forced to concede the theoretical right to self defence, whilst denying access to the tools actually needed to put the right into effect.

Well I wouldn't get too excited about it, as the article points out the mindset is similar to the UK on carrying guns.

Guns have to be stored securely in Canada and only security guards transporting valuables (e.g. Brinks) and people who are working in remote wilderness areas (who need protection from wildlife) can generally get an authorisation to carry a handgun for personal protection.

Any other purpose requires a recommendation from the police, which is next to impossible to get (they have to certify they are unable to provide sufficient protection - try and get the police to do that), plus the authorisation is reviewed every three months. My understanding is that basically only current and former police and prison guards can get them (with considerable difficulty), usually because they've been threatened by the Hell's Angels. I remember reading an article awhile ago about a prosecutor who had gotten one for the same reason.
