News & Events

The Ontario Gov’t designates two periods throughout the year as license-free, 2017: February 18-20 (12:01am SAT to 11:59pm MON) and July 1-9 (12:01am SAT to 11:59pm SUN).

Participants fishing without a license must fish under the Conservation fishing license limits which are set out in the current Ontario Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary. With the exception of the licensing requirement, Ontario fishing regulations, fees and limits continue to apply during license-free days. Printed copies of the summary are available at licence issuers and ServiceOntario Centres.
