Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan have a variety of rules and regulations when it comes to buying a firearm for hunting purposes. A firearms license is required for individuals who wish to possess or acquire firearms and go hunting.

Possession And Acquisition License
The Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) is the most common type of firearms license in Canada and allows an individual to possess and acquire both non-restricted and restricted firearms. To obtain a PAL, you must complete a firearms safety course and pass a background check conducted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
Restricted Possession And Acquisition License
The Restricted Possession and Acquisition License (RPAL) is required for individuals who wish to possess and acquire restricted firearms, such as handguns. The process for obtaining an RPAL is similar to the process for obtaining a PAL, with the addition of a written exam.
We also offer Minor's Licenses for individuals between the ages of 12 and 17. These licenses allow minors to possess and use non-restricted firearms under the supervision of a parent or guardian.
