Ontario is reminding anglers and hunters to renew their Outdoors Cards.

Everyone needs an Outdoors Card, along with a hunting or fishing licence tag, to hunt or fish in the province.

The card is valid for three years and all cards expire on the same date at the end of the three-year term — Dec. 31.

If your card has expired or is about to expire, now is the time to renew it. Outdoors Cards can be renewed:

•Online at ontario.ca/outdoorscard

•By calling 1-800-288-1155

•In person at a ServiceOntario centre or private issuer

Quick Facts

•Approximately 766,000 Outdoors Cards were sold in Ontario in 2011.

•About 1.3 million anglers fish in Ontario each year and spend $2.5 billion in the province annually.

•An Outdoors Card costs $9.68 for three years.

•All revenue from the sales of hunting and fishing licences in Ontario is used for wildlife and fisheries management.
