Fast Facts about Ontario Outdoors Cards and Fishing Licences

A licence to fish in Ontario consists of an Outdoors Card plus a fishing licence tag (either printed on the back of the card or accompanying the card).  Here is a quick overview of the basics for Ontario residents, Canadian residents, and non-Canadian residents.  

Fishing Licences
You must have an Outdoors Card and fishing licence tag to fish in Ontario, unless you're buying a one-day licence only.

Which Tag is Right For You?

 Full limits
 Conservation  Reduced limits

There are different types of fishing licence tags available in Ontario.  The type you select will be based on the number of fish you wish to keep, the number of days you wish to fish in Ontario, and your residency status.

In order to get your fishing licence tag you'll need the following:

  • Your Outdoors Card number
  • Your date of birth
  • Your postal or zip code last on file
