Hunter Education Requirement
To purchase a hunting license to hunt with a firearm, a bow or a cossbow, residents must have successfully completed an approved Hunter Education course. To trap, residents must have successfully completed an approved Trapper Education course. The requirements to obtain a hunter's or a trapper's certificates are: be a Quebec resident, be at least 12 years of age and not have had the said certificate suspended or cancelled following a Court conviction. Anyone under the age of 16 for bow or crossbow hunting, and 18 for firearm hunting, must be accompanied by a person 18 years of age or older who is the holder of a hunter's certificate appropriate with the arm used or a non-resident's hunting license. Under the "Federal Firearm Act", for firearm hunting, anyone who doesn't have a firearm possession license, must be under the presence and immediate supervision of a person who is in lawful possession of the firearm.

Hunter Orange Requirement
All hunters, guides and companions must wear at least 2580 square centimeters (400 square inches) of Hunter Orange on their back, shoulders, and chest, visible from any angle. During hunting season through December 1st, coyote, fox and wolf hunters and guides are required to wear the same as other hunters. (Exception: crow, or migratory bird hunters, and those hunting deer or moose during special archery seasons.)
