Some guests have been contacting us about receiving their Ontario Outdoors cars in the mail… finally. These are not credit cards but new government cards which should (theoretically) make issuing a fishing license easier and more painless – no more squinting to fill out microscopic forms in the early morning hours while half awake and anxious to go fishing.
Now that the cards have been mailed out, they will replace the pink temporary card/paper you received when you bought the license.
These cards are part of what you purchased with your fishing licenses this summer while in Ontario. The cards are good for 3 years so be sure to hang on to them. If you have a Canada/Ignace box of stuff ready to go at a moments notice on a fly in trip with Ignace Outposts you might want to put it in there. If not, besides getting such a box, find a spot to keep your outdoors card where you won’t forget it on your next trip to fish in our fine province. If you do forget your card next summer, you will need to purchase a new one and fill out another microscopic form, likely early in the morning.
