Non-Restricted Canadian Firearms Safety Course
This Course is No Longer Offered by FAST
This Canadian Firearms Safety course covers the safe use and storage of rifles & shotguns. This can be taken by anyone 12 years of age and up, however a person must be 18 years old to actually apply for and receive a PAL. Young people usually take the non-restricted course in order to gain knowledge and be able to borrow a shotgun or rifle for hunting, target practice or shooting competition.
To obtain a Minor’s Permit for hunting with a gun the young person must have successfully completed both the PAL & OHEP courses. Parents simply call 1-800-731-4000 to obtain this permit for their son or daughter.
