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.

  • be provided with necessary documents to apply for your Possession & Acquisition License (PAL), with Non-Restricted certification.
