Canada is home to several species of bear. Black Bear, Brown or Grizzly bears and the majestic Polar Bears call Canada home.

Bear spray is only safe and effective if you become knowledgeable on how and when to use it, how to transport it safely, and have practiced removing it from the holster and discharging it. A bear or other wildlife encounter can happen quickly and you want to be able to pull the bear spray out of the holster, remove the safety, and discharge it in less than 2 seconds. To do this calmly and effectively will rely on muscle memory.
