Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course

CRFSC Workbook

In accordance with the Firearms Act, a new firearms safety course focusing on restricted firearms (primarily handguns) was developed and implemented on February 1, 1999. The legislation stipulates that individuals wishing to acquire restricted and/or prohibited firearms must take the CRFSC and pass the tests.

Topics covered in the CRFSC include:

Students may participate as young as 12 years of age but must be age 18 for testing purposes.

The CFSC is a pre-requisite to the completion of this course.

If the CRFSC is taken within 30 days of having taken the CFSC, the CRFSC will be 6 hours in length. The cost will be a maximum of $130.00 ($110.00 for the course with practical and written examinations and $20 for the manual).
