Hunter Education and Ethics Development


Why HEED?

Learn your hunting skills the right way. All new hunters are encouraged to take the Hunter Education and Ethics Development (HEED) course, regardless of age. If you were born after April 1, 1987, you need to complete a hunter training course before getting your hunting licence.

To buy or own firearms and to buy ammunition, you must pass the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and get a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL).

The CFSC is offered by the Whitehorse Rifle and Pistol Club and by private contractors in the communities. Learn more about getting your PAL from the Canadian Firearms Program website or from Yukon's Chief Firearms Officer at 867-667-5332.
