Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit: Launch of Online Ordering System
Environment Canada has announced the launch of its new online permit ordering system that will improve hunter’s access to Migratory Game Bird Hunting (MGBH) Permits. MGBH permits can now be purchased 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will be shipped to the permit applicant within 3 to 5 business days. Click here to access the site. MGBH permits will also continue to be available for sale through Canada Post and other independent vendors across the country.
To complete an application for a permit, a hunter must provide their name, date of birth, mailing and/or billing address and answer a few questions about their hunting experience. Hunters must also provide a valid credit card number.
The cost of a MGBH permit is $17.00 plus applicable taxes. There is no charge for shipping at this time.
