New online service launched for hunters

The B.C. hunting portal gives hunters instant access to apply for their resident hunting credentials

Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations

VICTORIA – The provincial government has launched a new online portal that makes it easy for hunters to access a range of e-services, including hunting licences and applications for limited entry hunting (LEH) draws, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Steve Thomson announced on Monday.

The B.C. hunting portal gives hunters instant access to apply for their resident hunting credentials and the new Fish and Wildlife ID, which replaces the old hunter identification number.  Meanwhile, the new online LEH system offers interactive maps and a simple interface that instantly gives hunters information on upcoming hunting opportunities across the province. With the move online, the Province is no longer issuing paper LEH applications and will not accept paper LEH applications after 2016.

Hunters without Internet access can still visit and Service BC, FrontCounter BC or an authorized vendor to apply in person for the Fish and Wildlife ID or an LEH draw.

Over time, the Province will add other e-services like licences, compulsory reporting forms, guide licences and reporting, and applications to accompany a non-resident hunter.

The launch of the hunting portal follows up on a commitment that Thomson made in 2013. Moving hunting services online also acts on government’s commitment to reduce red tape for British Columbians and is part of transformation for government’s natural resource services under the natural resource permitting project.

To apply for a Fish and Wildlife ID, resident hunting credentials or  LEH visit the new B.C. hunting portal: www.gov.bc.ca/hunting
