Before You HEAD OUT AND FISH

You can buy your fishing licence online and save it in a digital format (for example, on your smartphone), print it from home, or print it through a participating ServiceOntario or licence issuer location.

Two types of fishing licences are available:

  1. Sport fishing licence, which includes full catch-and-possession fishing privileges
  2. Conservation fishing licence, which includes reduced catch-and-possession limits. This is ideal for anglers who want to release the majority of fish they catch.

Fishing licences are available for different durations, including: one day, eight days, one year, three years

Make sure to check out the Free Family Fishing events June 19-20 and July 3-11, 2021.
