CFSC-CRFSC

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) were developed to teach firearms safety and meet the mandatory requirements for licensing under section 7 of the Firearms Act.  These courses are designed with the Beginner in mind.

We offer these as a combined course, given over a 2-day period.  Knowledge of Firearms Safety takes time, and practice.  By combining these courses, you gain much more experience and more variety of experience.  Even if you don't intend to shoot hand guns, knowledge of them will still benefit you, and the additional experience of learning to handle them safely will help establish strong habits in your handling of all guns.  In addition, it is not uncommon for new shooters to discover an interest in hand guns after getting more comfortable with their long guns and seeing more of what is available to them in the shooting sports.

Section 7 of the Firearms Act says that individuals wishing to possess or acquire non-restricted or Restricted firearms must take the appropriate course, pass the required exams and then have their application approved before obtaining their License.

There are 3 Basic Licenses available:

  1. Minor's License
    • requires CFSC
    • For those ages 12 through 17
    • Permits the Holder to Borrow a firearm for:
      • Target Practice
      • Organized Shooting Competitions,
      • Hunting; and
      • Instruction in the use of Firearms
    • Acquire Ammunition
    • Further restrictions are often placed on the Minor's License when issued
  2. Non-Restricted Possession and Acquisition License (PAL)
    • requires CFSC
    • Allows the Possession and Acquisition of most Long Guns (Rifles and Shotguns)
    • Allows the holder to acquire Ammunition
  3. Restricted Possession and Acquisition License (RPAL)
    • requires CRFSC
    • Allows the Possession and Acquisition of many Hand Guns and a few more tightly controlled Long Guns

Our combined course prepares you for all of these Licenses.
