To reduce the risk of firearm-related accidents and enhance the safety of Canadian homes and communities, it is important that all applicants of a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) or a Minor's License have an adequate knowledge of firearm laws and handling practices.
Firearms Safety Non Restricted is a one-day course required for anyone applying for or renewing a Possession Acquisition License (PAL). In this course, you will learn safe handling as well as proper storage and transportation of firearms. It is instructed by provincially certified firearms trainers. Once the course is completed, you will then have to pass the corresponding test. The content of this course is controlled and approved by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Canadian Firearms Program (CFP).
Upon successful completion of Firearms Safety Non Restricted, you will:
- identify and embrace the social responsibilities of firearm ownership.
- be able to handle non-restricted firearms and ammunition safely.
- be provided with necessary documents to apply for your Possession & Acquisition License (PAL), with Non-Restricted certification.
This course has no prerequisites.
You must be 12 years of age or older to attend this course.
