Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC)

$201.00

Successful completion of the CFSC entitles you to apply for a Non-Restricted Possession and Acquisition License (PAL), which is necessary for the purchase of any non-restricted firearm and ammunition in Canada.

The CFSC is a one day, eight-hour course and it is a pre-requisite for the CRFSC.  The CFSC is held at Silver Willow on select Saturdays, once a month, from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. We recommend students bring a lunch as we are not currently serving food.

The class concludes with a written exam administered by the instructor; a minimum score of 80% is needed to pass.  Those who successfully pass the written exam will then be required to pass a practical exam.  Upon successful completion of both tests, the student will be given the document necessary for the PAL application process.

Recent changes in legislation preclude anyone from challenging the test – everyone taking the test must have completed the classroom portion of the course.

The PAL must be renewed every five years.

  • Offered Saturday, once a month
  • Approximately 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
  • Students recommended to bring a bag lunch
