BUY YOUR FISHING LICENSE ON LINE BEFORE YOU COME TO CANADA!!!

 

    Why do you want to do this?

 

    Because it's quick, easy and you'll have them so you can start fishing immediately! 

 

    They can be purchased MONTHS before you come.  Put them with your passport or fishing tackle box so you already have them packed for the trip.  Your printed copy IS your legal fishing license.   If you have ANY trouble with anything, please call the Service Center at:  1-800-387-7011 (Monday to Friday 8:30AM-5:00PM)  They are CLOSED on Saturdays and Sundays.

 

     If you have ANY difficulty with this, please contact me and I will make arrangements to help you get your license another way.
