Ontario’s Licence System For Hunters

Ontario’s New System For Entering Big Game Draws

Ontario has made some changes to the way hunters can apply to draws for deer, moose and elk:
Ways to Enter Draws

Online: Ontario hunters can now enter the draws through the Internet at ontario.ca/outdoorscard.

By Phone: Hunters also have the option of using the automated phone system, as in previous years.

ServiceOntario: Paper draw entries are also available, but must be picked up and dropped of at any of the 69 ServiceOntario centres that sell hunting licences. For locations, visit ontario.ca/outdoorscard.

It is important to note that mail-in applications will no longer be accepted.
Draw Deadlines

Antlerless Deer Draw: open from March 1 to July 3. Results of the antlerless deer validation tag draw will be available starting August 8.

Moose Draw: open April 18 to May 31. Results of the moose validation tag draw will be available August 1.

Elk Draw: open May 1 to June 11. Results of the elk validation tag draw will be available August 2.

Controlled Deer Hunt Draw: open August 1 to August 31. Results of the controlled deer hunt draw will be available October 10.

Draw results will be available by phone at 1-800-288-1155 and online at ontario.ca/outdoorscard.
Validation Tags

Big-game draws are used to randomly distribute hunting opportunities throughout the province in the form of validation tags.

The number of validation tags available each year is based on sustaining the species. For instance, if the population is high in any given area, the number of validation tags can be increased to help manage the herd.

As always, hunters’ chances of getting a validation tag are the same regardless of how they apply. The random draw is computerized, without preference for the method of entry.

Validation tags will be mailed to successful hunters —

MNR Tips Line Results In Fine And Suspension


Stirling Man Receives Fine And Suspension For Bow Hunting Offences

February 27, 2012
A Stirling man has been fined $1,200 for bow hunting-related offences.
Patrick W. Long pleaded guilty to charges of having an unencased and loaded firearm from half an hour after sunset to half an hour before sunrise, and for hunting big game without a licence. In addition to the fine, Long had his hunting licence suspended for one year.
The court heard that on November 22, 2011, Long was seen coming out of the bush after dark, dressed in camouflage clothing and carrying an unencased, loaded crossbow. After being alerted by a call to the TIPS line, a conservation officer checked Long and found he had no hunting licences.
Justice of the Peace Deanne Chapelle heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, in Belleville, on February 21, 2012.
For further information about Ontario hunting regulations, please consult the 2011 Hunting Regulations Summary, available at ServiceOntario/Government Information Centres, licence issuers and at ontario.ca/hunting.

PC Government Scraps the Long Gun Register

Commitment Made, Commitment Kept

Canadian Firearms Institute Praises Conviction of Harper Government

Ottawa, Ontario, Feb 15 – Today, firearms owners from every part of Canada are congratulating the Members of Parliament who voted to end the wasteful long gun registry.


“For over 20 years, trustworthy firearms owners have been subjected to heavy-handed legislation by government that completely missed the mark,” said Jim Newman, Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian Firearms Institute (CFI). “Canada can now direct its energy to fighting crime and stemming the flow of illegal guns in a meaningful way rather than continuing the lip service of past governments.”


Together with like-minded hunting and sport shooting groups, the CFI has consistently voiced its support for parliamentarians from all parties who fought for the elimination of the long gun registry.


“It has been a long and unnecessary fight to protect our firearms heritage,” said Newman. “But it was a fight that united good, honest people in a cause that protected their way of life – one that respects democracy and the will of the people.”


The Canadian Firearms Institute will continue its mandate to support, save and celebrate Canadians’ firearms heritage and the outdoor sports that are respected traditions right across our nation. For more information on the Canadian Firearms Institute please visit www.cfi-icaf.ca.
