B.C. expands services for hunters

The B.C. government is making it easier for hunters to obtain their licenses by expanding the online services offered for hunters

The B.C. government is making it easier for hunters to obtain their licenses by expanding the online services offered for hunters.

Last year, only limited entry hunt authorizations moved to an online system. The changes planned for this year involve moving hunting licences online as well as specific species licences that each hunter is required to apply for before hunting.

According to the provincial government, the recent legislative amendments introduced will make it easier for hunters to complete licensing, permitting and reporting activities online. The recent changes will also enable certain permits and licences to be issued on the same day that the applications are submitted.

“The addition of electronic-based sales of hunting licences and species tags is an important step toward meeting our government’s commitment to improve service and offer more convenience and choices for hunter registration in B.C.,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

The online licensing system can be accessed at www.gov.bc.ca/hunting.

Licences and limited entry hunt applications can also be made in person at Service B.C. and FrontCounter B.C. offices, or at authorized vendors.
