New hunters in Nova Scotia can now go online to take a required hunter education course. The interactive course provides improved training, greater convenience, and is easier to follow. The new process is made simpler by the web-based, interactive course and tests that are completed and submitted online. A new hunter taking the online course must appear in person at a government office only when writing the final exam.
Hunters can now also pay for and obtain their Nova Scotia Wildlife Resources Card online or through phone options. The card certifies that the hunter successfully completed the hunter education course and allows the hunter to apply for a hunting licence. The hunter must also have a federally-regulated licence to acquire and use a firearm. The fee for the Wildlife Resources Card is $7.14 plus HST.
