The program will come into effect /09 and anyone wishing to hunt or fish in Ontario will be required to have an Outdoors Card. The card will cost $9.00 and be valid for 3 years. These new requirements are part of the implementation of a new licencing automation system that takes effect 2010. The requirement for an Outdoors Card will also enhance the ability to replace lost hunting and and hunters will only need to show their hunter accreditation once rather than each time purchasing a hunting licence. Once the paper application has been completed, the Outdoors Card will be mailed to the purchaser's home address. If you have any questions about the program, you can contact Burton McClelland, Manager of Licencing Improvement Project, Ministry of Natural Resources at . Or go to the website listed below.
