Get your new Ontario Outdoors Card

Posted by on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 11:03 am


Many of our guests purchased an Ontario outdoors card 3 years ago.  Since these cards will have expired at the beginning of this year, it is time to renew.  Check the last two digits on your outdoors card for the year of expiry. If it reads 11, you will need a new card. Renewal notices  were sent out before the New Year but if you missed it or have not already renewed your outdoors card, here is some help.

Helpful links to our government website. 

As is typical with a government website, navigation is not easy. 

What is an Ontario Non resident Outdoors Card?

How to renew an expired Outdoors card.

A little simplification:

To renew your card you will need the following information:

Existing Outdoors Card Holders
  • your Outdoors Card number
  • your date of birth
  • your postal or zip code last on file

Your Outdoors Card will arrive in approximately 20 days.

Online renewal

If you cannot print your e-licence, call the Outdoors Card Centre toll-free at 1-800-387-7011 and they will print and mail you a copy.

Buying your card over the phone:

Call MNR’s interactive phone line toll-free at 1-800-288-1155. Again your Outdoors Card should arrive in approximately 20 days.

Similar to any government, phone purchases can be an interesting experience. 

Having a current Outdoors Card when you arrive in Ignace to go fishing or hunting will simplify the licence issuing process.  If yours has expired, please renew and if you have never had one, please consider getting one before you arrive.
