Canadian Firearm & Hunter Courses

We've moved to The Mario Cortellucci Hunting and Fishing Heritage Centre



Successful completion of the Ontario Hunter Education Course and exam gets you an Ontario H2 Hunting Licence. This permits you to hunt with bows in Ontario. The minimum course length is 12.5 hours. This does not include breaks and testing time. You must have a PAL to get an H1 Licence which permits you to hunt with both bows and Non Restricted firearms in Ontario. Successful completion of the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and exams gets you a Non Restricted Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) which permits you to possess and acquire Non Restricted firearms in Canada. A “One Stop Course simply means you take both the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and the Ontario Hunter Education Course together over several days. These days do NOT have to be consecutive. Taking the One Stop Course exempts you for 2.5 hours of training in the Hunter Education Course when you take the Canadian Firearm Course first. Successful completion of the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course permits you to possess and acquire Restricted firearms in Canada.
