Canadian Non-Restricted Firearms Safety Course (PAL)
The Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) was developed in partnership with the provinces and territories, national organizations with an ongoing interest in firearms safety, and many firearms and hunter education course instructors from across Canada. This course is a requirement for those individuals wishing to acquire non-restricted firearms such as rifles and shotguns. Most common for those wanting to hunt with a rifle or shotgun. The course is specifically designed to progress at a reasonable pace to allow someone with limited or no prior firearms experience to successfully pass the government approved tests, which are taken the same day. Students will develop skills and knowledge in the following areas: The evolution of firearms, major parts, types and actions, handling and using firearms in a safe manner, social responsibilities of firearms owners, ammunition, storage, display, and transportation laws for non-restricted firearms.
Students must present a government issued photo ID when they are checking in for the course.
