Manitobans can now purchase 2021–22 fishing licenses online at the Manitoba E-licensing portal.

The 2021-22 fishing season opens on May 15, 2021 in southern Manitoba, and May 22, 2021 in the northwest and north central region. You can fish all year round in the northeast region.

All anglers are required to obtain an angling licence to fish in Manitoba, unless exempt. Angling licences are now available online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be immediately purchased and printed at home.

“Our online e-licensing portal has made it easier than ever for Manitobans to purchase their angling licenses from their own homes,” said Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen. “Our government is continuing to modernize the way we deliver services while decreasing our carbon footprint.”
