Access to Crown land remains available for now.

If at any time the province decides to change that, the public will be notified.  Ontario will continue to provide frequent updates on facebook.com/FishWildlifeON, Ontario.ca/hunting and Ontario.ca/fishing. The public should stay tuned to their radios, televisions and/or cell phones to remain up to date on the most accurate and current information.

As COVID-19 is an evolving situation, we must all follow the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and act responsibly. Before you head outside, do the following:

1) Check for local restrictions on outdoor areas
2) Practice physical distancing - stay 2 metres from other people
3) Do not gather in groups while fishing, hunting, and hiking

At this time, fishing and hunting also remain open in Ontario. All rules and regulations are in effect.

Conservation Officers continue to patrol and protect our natural resources during the COVID-19 epidemic.
