CANCELLATION of Firearms Safety CourseS

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course, originally scheduled for this weekend March 21 & 22, 2020 is cancelled. Registered participants will be contacted by phone.

No additional courses will be scheduled as long as the local public health measures, that are currently in place to control the transmission of COVID-19, are in effect.

The public health direction requiring social distancing of at least one metre cannot be achieved in this particular teaching environment. This places all participants at risk for acquiring this new respiratory disease. It is for this reason that we must cancel this program for the time being.
