With BC Firearms Academy, the CFSC & CRFSC combined course is $205 +tax. Once you have completed the testing successfully, the RCMP collects an $80 processing fee for the licences.
PAL stands for Possession and Acquisition License. It is renewable every 5 years. As a general rule, applicants must have passed the Canadian Firearms Safety Course in order to obtain one. Both the restricted and non-restricted courses and licenses must be obtained at your own expense before the start of your CBSA training.
