What course do I need?
To qualify for a hunting licence in Manitoba, any person who obtained their first hunting licence after
1969 must be a graduate of the provincial Manitoba Hunter Education Course or a similar hunter
education course from another province or state.
The federal Canadian Firearms Safety Course (PAL) does not meet this requirement. Contact the
Canadian Firearms Center at 1-800-731-4000 for more information.
How old do I need to be?
A person must be at least 12 years of age to purchase a hunting licence or qualify for the youth hunting
provision. Students ages 10 & 11 can take this course, and they will receive a Hunter Apprenticeship certificate which will automatically turn into a Hunter Education certificate once they become 12 with no need to redo this course. Youth ages 10 & 11 have a shared bag limit for bird hunting.
Hunter Education Manual
Once I qualify or pass the Manitoba Hunter Education Course, do I need any other courses?
No, a person hunting under the direct supervision (within arm’s reach) of an adult with a firearms
licence does not need any other courses or a federal firearms licence.
However, anyone wishing to hunt away from the direct supervision of an adult with a firearms licence
needs a Federal Firearms Licence (Possession Acquisition Licence or a Minor’s Possession Licence). For
more information, contact the Canadian Firearms Program at phone 1-800-731-4000.
Our instructor does the written & practical portion for the Hunter Education Online Course for a fee of $15 (cash only).
