All hunters wishing to purchase any Manitoba hunting licence must possess one of the following:
If you have previously taken either the Manitoba Hunter Education Course or the old Hunter & Firearm Safety Training Course and you no longer have your card, your first step is to contact the Manitoba Wildlife Federation to obtain a replacement. If you are not on file, you may still qualify for the Hunter Education Certificate (see point 3 above).
Many jurisdictions in Canada and the United States have client cards that state the bearer is eligible to obtain a hunting licence in that province or state. If the card provides evidence that you have graduated from a hunter training course, then it could be considered a Hunter Education Certificate.
Please note that the Canadian Firearms Safety Course and the Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) do not meet the Hunter Education requirement.
Check with your local wildlife department to access a course or obtain a replacement certificate or card if a course was previously taken. In Manitoba, please contact:
Manitoba Wildlife Federation

You must carry your hunting licence, and any associated game tags, along with your Hunter Education Certificate with you while hunting. You are required to show the licence and certifcate to a Conservation Officer if asked to do so.
The regulation also contains a requirement intended to highlight the principles of safe and ethical hunting. Should you as a hunter choose to ignore the laws and regulations associated with hunting and are convicted of an offence in Manitoba, your eligibility to hold a hunting licence, in addition to any other penalties, will be suspended until you successfully take or retake a hunter education course.
