Fishing License Updates for 2009

Ontario anglers and hunters all have one, an Ontario Outdoor Card.
Ontario outdoors cardNow everyone, including non-resident hunters and anglers must have one starting January 1, 2009. The card will cost $9.00 and is valid for 3 years. These new requirements are part of the implementation of a new licensing automation system, which takes full effect in 2010. This year when our guests apply for a fishing license they will also purchase the Outdoor Card. In about a year the application can take place on-line, but for now it will require a paper application. We will provide the application forms to guests, so both your Outdoor Card and Fishing License will be waiting for you upon arrival for your adventure. The MNR will send you a plastic card-about the size of a credit card with your unique number printed on the card, a number you will use to acquire both fishing and hunting licenses in the future. This new Outdoors Card will be mailed to your home address.

Our podcast interview with Burton McClelland, Manager of Licensing Improvement Projects, Ministry of Natural Resources – Ontario explains this new development.
