2020 Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit Now Available
The 2020 MGBH Permit is now available for purchase:
- online, through Environment and Climate Change Canada’s e-Permitting system;
- at Canada Post outlets; or,
- through some independent vendors.
To hunt migratory game birds in Canada, you must have a valid federal migratory game bird hunting permit with a Canadian wildlife habitat conservation stamp or the electronic image of it affixed.
You must also know and obey the firearm regulations of the province or territory in which you will be hunting migratory game birds. Check for open season dates, bag and possession limits in the area where you will be hunting, and to verify applicable restrictions. The hunting seasons and bag limits for migratory game bird species are determined every two years and published as Schedule 1 of the Migratory Birds Regulations.
When you purchase a permit electronically, you will have the option to order a physical stamp by mail for no additional charge by checking the appropriate box in the online form. However, the physical stamp is not required to validate a permit that you purchase electronically.
If you need more information about the act or its regulations, please contact the Environment and Climate Change Canada Inquiry Center at 1-800-668-6767.
