Canadian License
« on: January 24, 2007, 07:37:37 PM »

Can anyone verify for me if a non-resident of canada under the age of 18 must purchase a Canadian Fishing License? I am only 17 but have seen both, that i must have a license, and i've also seen that i don't need a license. I can not find the official website so if anyone has any help i appreciate it.

Hey Kid,

Here's your answer...

Look at below link from 2005-2006 Guide...

On page 3 under "Nonresident Section" - You need to be 18 or over as a non-resident. Good news - You are good for this year...

http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/mnr/pubs/fishing/fishRegs/2005/Info_fr2005.pdf

Also I checked the 2007-2008 changes and nothing about age, so you will be fine.

Official Ontario Site:

You just saved $60.00  ;D

You might consider having an official copy of your birth certificate on you - not a copy machine copy, but a certified copy. If stopped by either side, you may be asked to prove your citizenship.

Also, got to be careful about the specifics of the non-resident license: http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/MNR/fishing/nonres.html - ran into this before. Do not buy a conservation license if you want to have a 5-bass limit ever - the creel limit on a conservation license is only 2 bass.

From the MNR web site above:
"Non-residents under 18 years of age may fish without a licence if accompanied by a adult who has a recreational fishing licence. Any fish caught are part of the catch and possession limit of the adult who holds the licence. As another option, non-residents under 18 years may purchase a licence and any fish caught apply to the catch and possession limits of that licence."

It says the above on page 3 of the fishing guide too.

If you plan on fishing tournaments and/or plan on keeping your own creel of fish, you need your own license. If you will not be keeping any fish, then you may not need your own license.

Well I guess I messed up - Thanks for the correction Dan  ;)

Well Kid, unfortunately you may have to pay $60 or just call the 800 number for Ontario office and explain your situations.

If I was fishing BFL or Stren - I would GET it just because no one needs the hassle if you get stopped on the water.
