Province Offers Free Fishing For Canada Day

ONTARIO-The Ontario government is celebrating this Canada Day by encouraging fishing enthusiasts and first-timers alike to enjoy free fishing from June 29 to July 7. This is a great opportunity to recognize the province’s angling traditions and to get outdoors and enjoy Canada Day.

“I welcome anyone curious about fishing to experience the excitement and satisfaction of this great sport firsthand,” said Graydon Smith, Minister of Natural Resources. “Wherever you are in Ontario – urban or rural – there are abundant opportunities to enjoy free fishing in celebration of Canada Day.”

This is the last free fishing period in 2024 when Canadian residents can fish for free in the province.

Families are encouraged to find a local event by visiting http://www.ontariofamilyfishing.com/.

If you are fishing for free during this period, you must follow conservation licence catch limits and carry identification issued by the provincial or federal government, showing your name and date of birth.

Over one million licensed anglers spend $1.75 billion per year on recreational fishing in Ontario.
