I'm not 100%....but I'm apperenticing with a guy who held a Quebec falconers license for a number of years ( he even has birds, which have to be kept in quebec untill he recieves his ontario license) and he has to take his 30 hours in ONT.

...you need no permits to keep a non indiginous bird but the course is of gold to learn, experienced and start on a good base with raptors and falconry

That's a wierd system, then. Under that logic, after he finishes his course he should theoretically be an apprentice like you. If they will allow him to take on an apprentice, surely they regognize his experience, thus negating the need for him to take another course. Makes not one ounce of sense to me.

after his course he is/or recieves his General Falconers licence. the appreentice license only last the 15 month. Then you allowd 3 birds instead of just one. I think its all just paper work to be honest.

ok... so then, once he gets the general falconer's licence, he'll be able to take you on officially as a mentor ?

Just trying to understand.

No Yann, he has to be a licensed falconer for 5 years before he could be a mentor! Can you believe that? Non sense eh?

When I first came to Canada I had to go through all of this even though I have been flying birds for 14 years when I arrived I went to Jim Wilson and asked him if he could sponsor me, but he started laughing and signed my papers

Ok here goes. Been down this road not too long ago. In Ontario you need a sponsor with a ONTARIO licence, stop. They must be licenced for 5 years . Your course from Quebec will not be recognized. Ontario will give you no credit or allowence in any way for your course in Quebec. Well we are this subject, I have been to Dan's Center and attended his course. It was money well spent and time even better spent. I found Dan too be down too earth, knowledgeable, and an excellent teacher of all things falconry. Dan will do you justice with out doubt. He does not stop teaching after the course ends and is more than willing to help long after the course is done. Highly recommended, go see him for sure. As for Ontario sponsor, contact the Ontario Hawking Club.

Hope this helps. You can always PM for more info and I will try to help you out.

Here is a link. Study these laws. It is very important that you understand what you are getting into. You should be able recite these regs in your sleep.
Good luck and stay in touch.
