These are federal PAL and RPAL courses. Possession and Acquisition Licenses are Canadian gun licenses, allowing people to legally buy, own, use, and store various firearms and ammunition.
Student has the sole responsibility to check on his/her own actual eligibility to hold a PAL. RGSL cannot be held liable if students are deemed ineligible for a PAL by the RCMP.
RCMP will charge students a processing fee after the course is complete, and again once every 5 years. This fee is not included in the course registration.
All students must be 18 on the day of the course. Age 12-17 may attend a Non-Restricted course if their guardian contacts RGSL first.
It’s important that students complete their Non-Restricted course first, as it’s a prerequisite for the optional Restricted level.
If you’re registering for both levels, you’ll need to complete this registration twice (once for each course). Make sure your Non-Restricted date is the first of the two, and we’ll confirm all your details by email.
Students must have an adequate grasp of written and verbal English; and must not be under the influence of any substance, such as drugs or alcohol.
Please take note of the date, time, location, and type of course so that you don’t end up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Please ensure on the course date that you bring one piece of government photo ID and proof of vaccination. ID usually means a driver’s license, international passport, or a PR card.
We will take a few short breaks throughout the day – please feel free to bring food and hot/cold drinks as this is a day-long course. Lunch break will be long enough to facilitate quick nearby fast food.
Students agree to follow course rules; refrain from using foul or slanderous language; and from harassing other individuals. Behaviour, demeanour, hygiene, and attitude cannot be in any way offensive, threatening, intimidating, unsanitary, or in any other way contrary to the best interest of the venue, RGSL, or the course being taught. RGSL may eject any student who fails to follow course rules.
Students understand and agree to release and hold harmless RGSL, its officers, other students, sponsoring and affiliated agencies, and the owners and lessees of the premises used; with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property, howsoever caused.
If student is changing from one type of PAL to another, bring the former license if able (it will help us with some of your forms).
