Non-Canadian Outdoors Card Info
Outdoors Cards and renewals can be purchased online. We continue to sell them in our office. They are required for purchasing your angling tag.
Please remind your guys to bring their "outdoors card" if they have one. They would have received it in the mail from our government if they purchased a fishing license in Ontario. It is a plastic card the size of a credit card that says Ontario Outdoors card on it. It will save the $9.68 to buy a new one.
Boater Certification information
There is now a requirement for boaters in Canada to have a certificate indicating proof of competency to operate a boat. See Transport Canada Regulations. This can come in a few ways.
First is a Canadian Boater's certificate which can be acquired on line - it
takes a few hours and depending on the site from $50 to $60. This
certificate is good for life. BoaterExam.com
A second option is to have a boater's certificate issued in a US jurisdiction such as your home state or coast guard. Many already have this as some states already have mandatory boater's regulations. US Power Squadron
The third option and easiest for you if you don't already have a certificate, is for me to issue you a temporary certificate. There is no cost to you and it only takes a few moments. The only drawback for this method of compliance is that the certificate is only good for the duration of your visit and you'll require another one when you return.
