We have both, mostly OPP but there are certain areas with RCMP but very few. However there is a fair sized contingent in Ottawa.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

I could be wrong, but I believe that these things are handled by the RCMP through their provincial CFO offices.  However, when I had to deal face to face with an officer about a transfer issue I had a few years ago it was the OPP that I dealt with.  Apparently, the OPP will act as the enforcement arm when needed.

You have RCMP in Alberta. Just call them. Since guns are Federal, the RCMP is also Federal.

As a side note a buddy is going through the licensing process here in Ontario and after the course he had to send all the paperwork to the RCMP in New Brunswick for checks and processing. It was the address right on the application form he downloaded.
