Ontario Family Fishing Events

Introduce a friend to fishing!

Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card.  New this year, the Ontario Government has designated four periods throughout the year as license-free:

February 16 – 18, 2019 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Monday)
May 11 – 12, 2019 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday)
June 15 – 16, 2019 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday)
June 29 – July 7, 2019 (12:01 a.m. Saturday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday).

During all other time periods, Canadian residents between the ages of 18 and 64 years must purchase a valid fishing license to legally fish in Ontario.

There has never been a better time to introduce a friend to fishing!

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.
