Licensing system revamped


The province has launched a better way for hunters and anglers across the province to get their Outdoors Cards, as well as hunting and fishing licensing products.

“Our government is making life easier and allowing you to get outdoors quicker,” said Natural Resources and Forestry minister John Yakabuski.

“We have launched a new licensing service that makes it easier to buy hunting and fishing licences,” he noted.

“It was designed with hunters and anglers in mind.”

The new licensing service is easy to use, with new mobile features and a single Outdoors Card.

It can be accessed online at, at participating ServiceOntario locations, or at one of more than 700 licence issuers across the province.

Use it now to purchase Outdoors Cards, fishing licences, and small game licences.

“We've improved our service so you can get out on the lake or into the woods in less time by purchasing licences from the comfort of home,” said Yakabuski.

“Interacting with your government should be seamless, and we've replaced the old service with one that serves everyone in the province.”

The province also recently announced its plan to honour past and present members of the Canadian Armed Forces by amending fishing regulations so veterans and active Canadian Armed Forces members can enjoy free recreational fishing by early 2019.
