ABOUT ONTARIO FISHING LicenceS

In Ontario, Canadian residents need an Outdoors Card (the plastic card is valid 3 years) plus a one year or three year Fishing licence Tag. Residents under 18 years of age may fish without a licence when accompanied by a licence carrying adult.  Persons, over 65 years of age or with a valid Disable Person Card or permit do not need a fishing licence but must have proof of status on them when fishing.  There are two types of fishing licence, sport or conservation.  Fishing licences and three year Outdoor Cards can be bought on-line, a printable e-licence will be issued you should carry this, when fishing, until your permanent plastic licence arrives in the mail:
