Go Fishing with your family!

Ontario Family Fishing Events is a province-wide opportunity for Canadian residents to fish Ontario waters without the otherwise mandatory fishing version outdoors card. The Ontario Government has designated four periods throughout the year as license-free:


Family Fishing Weekend in February (February 13-15, 2021)

Mother’s Day Weekend in May (May 8-9, 2021)

Father’s Day Weekend in June (June 19-20, 2021)

Family Fishing Week in July (July 3-11, 2021)

During all other time periods, Canadian residents between the ages of 18 and 64 years must purchase a valid fishing license to legally fish in Ontario.

There has never been a better time to go fishing with your family!
