FISHING

Ontario boasts some of the finest freshwater sport fishing in the world, with special packages and resort accommodations available for the avid angler. Visit www.ontariotravel.net/gofish for more information on Ontario's fishing experience.

To fish in Ontario, you must have a fishing licence, which is available at most sporting goods stores, bait and tackle outlets, tourist outfitters and fishing lodges. If you're a resident of Ontario, you must have an Outdoors Card before you can buy a fishing licence. Outdoors Card applications are available from licence issuers and offices of the Ministry of Natural Resource.

If you're a Canadian resident from outside Ontario, you must also buy an Outdoors Card and a fishing licence. Licences for non-residents of Canada can be bought at most licence issuers; and you don't need an Outdoors Card.

You'll find more information about licences and regulations in the Fishing Regulations Summary, available from most  Ontario Travel Information Centres.

HUNTING

In addition to the world's finest freshwater sport fishing, Ontario provides outdoors enthusiasts with the opportunity to hunt deer, moose, wild turkey, bear, waterfowl and a variety of other game species. Special packages and hunting trips are available throughout the province. Visit www.ontariotravel.net/hunting for information on hunting trips in Ontario. You can buy your hunting licence at most sporting goods stores, bait and tackle outlets, tourist outfitters and hunting lodges. If you're a resident of Ontario, or a resident of Canada not living in Ontario, you must have an Outdoors Card before you can purchase a hunting licence. Outdoors Card applications are available from licence issuers and offices of the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Non-residents of Canada do not need an Outdoors Card to buy a hunting licence. For details about hunting regulations, pick up a copy of the Hunting Regulations Summary from most Ontario Travel Information Centres.
