Well, it’s been a long time coming but we are finally certified to teach the Canadian Firearms Safety Course in Nunavut!
We were hoping that the so-called “Common Sense” Firearms Licensing Act would allow instructors that are currently certified to teach the course in one jurisdiction to deliver it in any other jurisdiction. This is a federally developed program that is overseen by the RCMP. To us it makes no sense that instructors are limited to teaching in one region but it looks like we’ll have to wait for this aspect of the legislation to change.
In the mean time, we have been working to expand our teaching certifications to other regions. Currently, we are able to teach in the NWT, Yukon, Nunavut and Alberta.
John and I will be touring the Sahtu region of the NWT this month, offering the CFSC in all five communities.
If you or your organisation would like to discuss having the course delivered in your community, get in touch asap! We’re already making bookings into the new-year.
