Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course

Tsiothohrko:wa/January 13, 2016

The Akwesasne Justice Department Conservation Program will be hosting a three (3) day Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course for anyone who wishes to get their restricted license. This course is for persons who wish to possess and/or own restricted firearms in Canada.

We have contacted an instructor Fredrick Guse. Mr. Guse is certified by the Chief Firearms Office to teach the non-restricted and restricted firearms safety course. He will hold the course at the HAVFD Fire Hall on Cornwall Island on March 4th (1pm-4pm) and March 5th and 6th (8am-5pm) 2016.

Registration will be given to the first ten (10) applicants on a first come first serve basis. The deadline to apply is February 16th 2016 at 4:00pm. Payments for the course will be taken in cash ONLY on the morning of the course. A $40.00 non-refundable deposit must be submitted to Brett Gambill by 4:00pm on February 16, 2016 in order to be registered. The $40.00 deposit will be deducted from the total cost of the course.

The cost for the course is as follows:

Canadian Firearm Safety Course (CFSC) 8-10 hours and Test: $150.00 + $15.75 (for course manual). For persons who wish to take only the non-restricted safety course, they only need to attend two (2) days of training NOT all three (3).
