Is my kirpan considered a weapon?


The kirpan is not a weapon but an important article of faith for the Sikhs, and is not considered a weapon according to the law or by Canadian courts.

Due to efforts by the WSO, and courageous Sikhs who have fought for freedom of religion, the right of Canadian Sikhs to wear the kirpan has been confirmed in a number of different settings.
