The pandemic has not caused any delays to the production and distribution of Outdoors Cards, a Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) spokesperson confirmed.
“We have committed to clients that they will receive their card, once purchased, in approximately 20 days, and we are hitting that target most of the time,” MNRF communication specialist Jolanta Kowalski stated via email.
Clients can use their Licence Summary (it will show they have a valid Outdoors Card) until they receive their plastic card in the mail, she added.
Renewals begin in December
The Outdoors Card renewal period starts on the first Tuesday in December every year. This year, it begins Dec. 1.
Outdoors Cards are available online at the Fish and Wildlife Licensing Service, by automated telephone (1-800-288-1155), or at a participating Service Ontario or fish and wild licence issuer locations.
