Anyone suffering from a persistent, significant physical impairment that prevents him from hunting in accordance with the Act respecting the conservation and development of wildlife may be authorized to disregard certain provisions in the Act under conditions determined by the Department. The authorizations apply solely to the holder and are of two kinds:
To obtain the authorizations, you must obtain the Explanatory document for applicants and health professionals and the "Hunting authorization application for handicapped person" and the "Certificate of physical deficiency" forms. The applicant must have a physician, an occupational therapist or a physiotherapist fill out the latter form and send it to the nearest regional office of the Department. The documents are also available from the regional offices of the Department.
Important: A hunter who accompanies the holder of an authorization for a person with a disability may not take advantage of the authorization and must abide by the rules in force for the period during which he is hunting.
