BUY A PERMIT ONLINE:
In August 2015, Environment and Climate Change Canada implemented a full electronic permitting system which enables Canadian and international hunters to buy federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting permits online and print them from home!
E-permits include a printed image of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (Canadian Duck Stamp) for validation. Hunters who also wish to receive a physical copy of the Canadian Duck Stamp by mail can do so by checking a box when purchasing their e-Permit. There is no additional charge for shipping the Stamp. Note: the physical stamp is not required to validate the e-Permit.
BUY A PERMIT AT CANADA POST:
If you have any questions with regards to the availability of the Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits at a postal outlet, you can contact Canada Post customer service at 1-866-607-6301.
BUY A PERMIT FROM AN INDEPENDENT VENDOR:
2016 Permits are also available for purchase through some independent vendors.
NOTE: A separate Stamp does NOT need to be purchased to validate a Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit
All Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permits come with a Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp (Canadian Duck Stamp) affixed for validation.
