Fishing License Renewal Reminder!

Share this Post:

Hey everyone, it’s that time of year again when your outdoors card, along with fishing and hunting licenses, may be up for renewal. If you started from day one with your outdoors card in Ontario and did a 3-year license on every renewal, you’ll need to update before you venture out in 2023.

As you can see in our example image, the date of renewal is clearly marked. If you are fishing or hunting on January 1st of 2023 and still only have your ’22 license, you’ll be doing so illegally.

The process is quick and simple if you do it online. 

Once complete, you’ll receive a PDF that must be either downloaded to your mobile device or printed and carried on your person. This is needed if you are checked out by a conservation officer.

Upload this to your mobile device or print it and carry it on your person until you receive your new card

WHERE TO LOOK

Renewing is easy, I did it online in no time at all: https://www.huntandfishontario.com/ for my ONTARIO renewal. Ontario residents can begin their renewals on December 7th to make sure they don’t miss a second of the action!

If you prefer not to renew online, you can use the following info:

Pete, one of the most revered and popular anglers in the nation, has a tremendous love for the game… the fishing game. Pete’s vast knowledge of angling and ability to articulate it to audiences worldwide has endeared him to his fans who still see Pete as just “ONE OF THE BOYS”. Pete is also an accomplished and published outdoor writer and photographer as well as a sought-after speaker. In 2012 another of Pete’s ultimate fishing career highlights occurred when he was inducted into the Canadian Angler Hall Of Fame, something he never thought would happen. A Canadian fishing icon.

  1. Hey Pete. My dilemma this yr is that I turn 65 in June and will no longer need any of the licenses. I did the 3 yr when I got it for that reason. But have been told, I still need to get them, because I don’t turn 65 till June. Won’t even be fishing till probably end of may into June. What do you think about this.

  2. Hey W. Willy it is so crazy that you sent me this in that in a few years I’ll be in the exact same scenario. The way I read it is that until us aging fella’s turn 65 (the day of) we need a valid license if we’re fishing. I sent in and paid for my full 3 year again and that last year is when I’ll be in your position. I just bought it and sucked it up.

    I truly feel that at least some of our license fees are going to our resources and that in itself eases my mind in paying for that first 1/2 year of “senior-ship”.

    Have a great day and fishing season!
