Service Fee Will Support Fish and Wildlife Management

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry

Beginning in December 2014, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry will introduce a $2 service fee to directly support fish and wildlife management across Ontario.

All fees will be invested through the Fish and Wildlife Special Purpose Account. Fish and wildlife programs improve fishing and hunting in Ontario through licensing, enforcement, scientific research and fish stocking.

The service fee will be applied to:

  • Outdoors Cards.
  • Hunting and fishing licences.
  • Draws for which a fee is charged.

The service fee will be charged across all points of purchase, including:

  • Online.
  • By phone.
  • In-person at a ServiceOntario counter or private licence issuer.

Quick Facts

  • The Fish and Wildlife Special Purpose Account currently supports approximately two-thirds of fishing and hunting opportunities in Ontario.
