A Change in Canadian Fishing License Distribution

Please be aware that beginning April 1, 2014 Canadian Fishing Licenses will be delivered electronically through the National Recreational Licensing System (NRLS). The Department of Fisheries and Oceans will no longer be printing paper licenses.

SALMON CONSERVATION STAMP:

Please note that if you intend to keep any fish you catch you will have to purchase a “Salmon Conservation Stamp” along with your license. The stamp is an additional $6.
