The Ontario fishing license process is undergoing some changes for 2012.  We received the following notice from Quetico Park indicating that licenses may no longer be available at the Quetico Ranger Stations, and suggesting that visitors should apply for their Ontario fishing licenses online or by phone.  This is the message we received from Quetico Park:

Currently we are undergoing talks with the MNR [Ministry of Natural Resources] in regards to Quetico Park’s ability to sell fishing licenses using the new automated licensing system.  At this time it is unknown if we will be able to provide this service to our customers.  Because of this uncertainty, we ask that you inform your clients and request they obtain their outdoors card and fishing licenses prior to arriving at the park.

Licenses can now be obtained online at   Licenses can also be obtained over the phone by calling 1-800-288-1155 or in person at issuer locations. Licensing Help Line 1-800-387-7011.
