Hunter Education is designed to ensure responsible and safe hunting – no matter where you choose to hunt. And while all government approved programs meet standards previously set by the International Hunter Education Association, different jurisdictions have different rules. Consult the interactive map below to learn more about Hunter Education requirements, contacts, and links for the province or Territory that you are interested in.
