Due to high demand, the District of Sicamous will be offering a second PAL Course on June 3 and 4, 2023. Led by two certified PAL instructors and coaches, this course will teach you everything you need to know to apply for your Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). Certification and documentation will be provided once you complete the course. The course costs $200 per person.
This course is for people wishing to buy, borrow or inherit rifles and shotguns. The classes are taught with a detailed PowerPoint presentation, demonstrations, videos and hands-on instruction. Class sizes are limited to 12 students per class to allow for more individualized instruction for maximized learning.
Plan ahead so that you will be ready: there is no such thing as an interim license. You must wait for your official PAL from the government before you can acquire a firearm.
Minors as young as 12 can take the course and receive a Minors Permit.
All materials will be supplied. Full payment is required to book your spot in the course.
If you have any questions, please contact the Recreation Department at 250-836-2477 ext. 2192.
