Does Airsoft Canada allow AEG Snipers?

I was told by someone that AEG snipers weren't allowed? But I see in some Milsim games organised here that they are if the AEG respects 400fps.

AEG snipers observe the AEG limits.
Bolt action operators are, with field owner and hosts discretion, given a slightly higher limit.

With AEG's, even with your selector locked to semi, it still allows for a follow up rounds to be fired too quickly.

Snipers shots are typically deliberate single rounds and shouldn't require too many follow up shots to make a kill. the more shots you take, the quicker they will find you. AEG's are inherently loud and are not the best tool for a sniper.

AFAIK .. "AEG Snipers" are generally given a similar role, as a DMR. longer barreled AEG's that are generally a little more accurate than the average.

Still have to meet the general field limits, and if the player isn't playing it smart, can be at a disadvantage to the rest of the field.

Get a general purpose AEG and mix it up close and personal on the field for the first little while before moving on to any sniper platform.. you might find that being a marksman is way more boring, and at more of a disadvantage than you thought, as it applies to airsoft. It takes a lot of skill to be somewhat effective on the airsoft field, and it often involves a lot less action.

It really isn't a new player's role - and with the amount of new players that want to be sniper marksman, if they all actually got them, some games would be awful slow with a dozen noobs hiding in the weeds and no action going on, except the veterans cleaning up the weeds at the expense of the game's objectives, and watching the dozen noobs walking dejectedly back to respawn, to repeat the cycle.

ASC has no say in it, its a meeting place not a governing body.
Its solely up to the field owner/game organizer

The way we do it down here is - AEG snipers MUST have a MOSFET that limits them to a minimum of 1 shot per 1.5 seconds and they abide by the BA FPS limits and MEDs.

Find your local forums and ask there.
