The Conservation Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) course is for anyone 10 or older who is interested in getting their BC hunter number.

The PAL (Possession Acquisition License) is available for anyone 12 years or older, between 12 and 18 you will be given a Junior Pal which will then be converted to a regular PAL once you reach 18.

For Individuals aged 12 to 17

  • A Minors’ Licence will enable young people to borrow a non-restricted rifle or shotgun for approved purposes such as hunting or target shooting. Generally, the minimum age is 12 years, but exceptions may be made for younger people who need to hunt to sustain themselves and their families. Applicants must have taken the Canadian Firearms Safety Courseand passed the test.
  • Once a person turns 18, they are no longer eligible for a minor’s licence. Instead, they must apply for a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) and pay the applicable fee.
