Trappers: It is with regrets that the OFMF Board of Directors announces that the 2020 AGM and Convention in Sioux Lookout, ON has been CANCELLED due to the COVID – 19 pandemic and the crisis it continues to cause. The main concern of the OFMF is the safety and health of all of our members. Once this pandemic’s restrictions on travel and gatherings of large groups have been lifted, the Board of Directors will send a notification out to members for a special meeting date and location where the AGM will be held in the province – hopefully sometime this fall. We regret any inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused; however, we are all in the same position due to COVID-19. While it is now cancelled, we would still like to thank the Sioux Lookout Convention Committee for all their efforts and time for taking on the planning for this event.
Another trapping season has come and gone! If you are done trapping for the season, SIGN and date your report(s), make sure your furs add up (ex. 7 beaver harvested, 4 were sold, 3 left on hand), attach payment ($62.15 for one licence and membership; $39.55 for just one licence), and email/fax/mail it in to our office. Reports are required to be sent in by June 10th 2020, even if you didn’t end up trapping. Find a blank harvest report HERE. If you have any questions regarding how to report atypical fur catches, payment for multiple licences, or anything else, see the link below, or please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone. Remind your fellow trappers to submit their report(s) as well! You can also send in your calendar donation at the same time! Find the donation form HERE.
