To qualify for a hunting licence in Manitoba, any person who obtained their first hunting licence after 1969 must be a graduate of the provincial Manitoba Hunter Education Course or a similar hunter education course from another province or state.

In Manitoba, thousands of hunters take to the field each year. Hunters make this annual pilgrimage to woods and water so that they can experience the natural world and be an active participant in it.

Over 20 million students have graduated from North American Safety/Hunter Education courses. These courses have contributed to a significant decrease in hunting accidents and an increased understanding of the responsibilities each hunter accepts while hunting.

The primary goal of the Hunter Education Program is to help you understand the important role you, as a hunter, have in wildlife management and conservation. Equally important is the safe use and handling of firearms and the ethical and responsible behaviour of all hunters.

There are two ways to receive a Hunter Education Certificate:

Take the in-class Manitoba Hunter Education Course. The Hunter Education Course is a comprehensive 8-hour course and is available in almost every community across Manitoba. Simply sign up with one of the instructors below to take a class.

Students as young as 10 years old can take their Hunter Education Course in-class. If they are successful they will receive their Apprentice Hunter Education Certification Card. This allows them to hunt game birds and wild turkey under a shared bag provision provided:

  • The youth carries and can produce proof of age and a valid hunter education certificate or apprentice hunter education certificate or an equivalent certificate from another province, territory or country.
  • The youth is accompanied by a person who is 18 years of age or older who possesses a valid licence for the species being hunted, and at all times when hunting, be in the immediate physical vicinity of the youth.
  • The adult must include any game taken by the youth as part of his or her bag limit and possession limit.

Note: if the youth wishes to hunt Migratory Game Birds they must purchase a Canadian Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit and Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp.
