Canadian Firearms Safety Course


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. The content of this course is controlled and approved by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Canadian Firearms Program and was developed to meet the mandatory requirements of section 7 of the Firearms Act.

To be eligible to apply for a Possession and Acquisition Licence, classroom participation in the full CFSC is mandatory for first-time licence applicants. Once the course is completed, individuals will then have to pass the tests.



Topics covered in the CFSC include:


  • the evolution of firearms, major parts, types and actions;
  • basic firearms safety practices;
  • ammunition;
  • operating firearm actions;

    Any youth under the age of 12 who meets the qualifications of the Hunter Education Program will be issued an Apprentice Hunter Education Certificate. Youth aged 10 and 11 who have an Apprentice Hunter Education Certificate can hunt game birds and wild turkeys under the Shared Bag Provisions.


    How old do I need to be?


    A person must be at least 12 years of age to purchase a hunting licence or qualify for the youth hunting provision. We will accept students into our Hunter Education class who are within 3 months of their 12th birthday; however, the hunter safety card is not issued until he/she turns 12.

    Younger students may take the course, but will be required to take the course again when they turn 12.
