It doesn’t matter if you’re coming from another continent or another part of Ontario, you still need to spend time preparing for your upcoming fishing trip. Make sure you have the right licenses, know the regulations, and have the right gear for this region’s types of fishing.

Fishing licences and Outdoors Card


Residents of Ontario and Canada will need to purchase an Outdoors Card as well as obtain an Ontario fishing license. Stop by one of the region’s many sporting goods stores, tourist shops, or bait and tackle outlets. Visit the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources website for more information about fishing licenses and the Outdoors Card.


Non-residents of Canada need to purchase a fishing licence to fish in Ontario. You can buy one at more than 2,000 locations throughout the province, including tourist outfitters’ camps and lodges, sporting-goods stores, and bait dealers. You will be required to fill out a form and pay license fee.

For up-to-date fishing license prices, please visit the Ontario MInistry of Natural Resource website.

Non-resident fishing licences can be ordered over the phone from the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources at 1-800-667-1940.

Bringing your boat into Canada

You can bring your boat into Canada through a land border crossing or through a marine border crossing. There are several remote area border crossings that require you to register by telephone. You are obligated by law to declare the importation of your marine pleasure craft to the CBSA upon its initial arrival in Canada and pay all applicable duty and taxes, regardless of where the vessel is licensed or registered.

For more information about bringing your boat into Canada, visit the Canada Border Services website.

You can also telephone 1-800-461-9999 for general customs information toll-free from anywhere in Canada. If calling from outside of Canada, dial (204) 983-3500 or (506) 636-5064 (long-distance changes apply).
