It is important to remember to fill out the Harvest Report that comes attached to your trapping licence. Please click HERE for an in-depth set of instructions regarding how to fill out the harvest report properly.
In order to keep your licencing up to date, you are required to purchase at least one Ontario Trapping Licence within a span of five years. If you go over five years, you are ineligible to obtain a trapping licence until you retake the Fur Harvest, Fur Management and Conservation course and become re-certified again.
All applications for new trapping licences or when a trapper requests to trap in a new area require Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry authorization. Licences as head trappers on Registered Traplines (crown land) are issued as vacancies occur, and according to set procedures (point system). Those wishing to trap on private land (generally in more southern parts of Ontario) will require the permission of the landowner before a licence can be issued. For information, please contact OFMF or a District/Area office of the MNRF located in the area you wish to trap in.
