The Saskatchewan Hunter Education program is standard across the province and available to everyone!
SAFE is contracted by the Government of Saskatchewan to deliver the Saskatchewan Hunter Education Program in the Province.
This course is mandatory for anyone born after January 1, 1971 and should be taken by all first time hunters. Successful completion will meet requirements to purchase a hunting licence or write the trappers exam.
11 years old is the minimum age to take this course.
Anyone requiring a federal firearms licence (PAL) will also require the Canadian Firearm Safety course or test. As of 2003 SAFE no longer delivers this course, although most instructors retained their certification and still include it in their Hunter Education course for an additional fee.
Check with your instructor upon registering.
If you have any questions regarding the federal firearms licences, contact the Canadian Firearms Center at 1-800-731-4000 for more information.
All courses taught in the province of Saskatchewan are done by volunteers dedicated to promoting the hunting and shooting sports.
