ONTARIO’S HUNTER EDUCATION PROGRAM
We are designated by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters to deliver Ontario’s Hunter Education Program, across the province of Ontario.
In 1957, Ontario became the first Canadian province to establish a hunter safety training course. Over time the course has evolved into a broader Hunter Education Program.
Ontario’s Hunter Education Program is administered by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.
The Ontario Hunter Education Program will assist you to understand the natural world and become a knowledgeable and responsible hunter.
The program also reinforces the firearms safety information contained in the Canadian Firearms Safety Course.
New hunters of all ages must take hunter education training and pass an exam before they can purchase their first hunting licence.
More than one million individuals have successfully completed hunter education training.
