Service members, veterans can fish for free

The provincial government is recognizing those who committed themselves to defend our land, waters, and way of life with a token of appreciation—they now can fish in Ontario at no charge.

Amendments to Ontario's fishing regulations came into effect Jan. 1, enabling active Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans to fish in Ontario's waters without having to purchase a licence.
