Ottawa Firearm Safety – Canadian Firearm Safety Course CFSC/CRFSC – Upcoming Course and Exam Schedule

THE GOVERNMENT IS STILL ISSUING RPAL LICENCES AND THERE IS NO PLAN TO STOP ISSUING RPAL LICENCES.

We have received confirmation from the Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) of Ontario that the government is still issuing RPAL licences (PAL with restricted privileges) and there are no plans to stop issuing them in the future. The CFO has confirmed that instructors can continue to run CRFSC courses and exams.  Students who successfully complete the CRFSC course and exam will still be able to apply for a PAL with restricted privileges.

ONLY TRANSFERS OF HANDGUNS HAVE BEEN STOPPED BY THE RECENT REGULATIONS. ALL OTHER RESTRICTED FIREARMS TRANSFERS WILL CONTINUE TO PROCEED NORMALLY.

There are many reasons to take the CRFSC, and we are encouraging students to continue forward obtaining their RPAL licence:

1. Not all handgun transfers have been frozen. The government has a list of exceptions where handguns transfers will still be granted;

2. You still require an RPAL licence for many employment purposes (ie. many security, law enforcement, wilderness protection, and other employment opportunities);

3. You still require an RPAL licence to purchase restricted rifles/shotguns;

4. You still require an RPAL licence to borrow restricted firearms;

5. You still require an RPAL licence to use restricted firearms at a range (handguns are still used at shooting ranges);

6. The firearms laws in Canada are currently in an extreme state of flux. Many new changes to firearms laws have occurred recently and more and more changes keep being proposed. It makes sense in this climate to maintain the highest level of licencing privileges on your firearm licence. The government can re-classify your one-time non-restricted firearm into the restricted firearm category at any time (even without passing any new legislation); and

7. You also get a broader introduction to firearms safety training, and extra hands-on training time with firearms by attending the CRFSC. You should learn how to handle all firearms safely.
