The province has selected Robert Freberg to serve in the role as the province’s next Chief Firearms Officer after what they say was an exhaustive and competitive process.
Freberg is the past CEO of Brigadier Security Systems and Elite Security Systems, serving in the position for 34 years. He has been a board member and volunteer with the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation for more than 40 years and served as President for five years. He was a former elected member of the National Board of Directors for the Canadian Sports Shooting Association.
While Saskatchewan’s CFOs have previously been chosen by the federal government, the province made the decision earlier this year to select its own. CFOs are responsible for administering the federal Firearms Act in the provinces, and have jurisdiction over the licensing, transporting and carrying of firearms. The CFO also licenses instructors to deliver firearms safety courses in the province.
