CANADIAN FIREARMS SAFETY COURSE (CFSC)
It is the responsibility of every hunter to know the federal, provincial and municipal laws, which apply when hunting. Ignorance of existing laws is not an acceptable defence in a court of law. When people decide to hunt, they are expected to know the laws governing hunting and must obey them.
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.
