Permits for residents
Residents can purchase annual fishing permits, or permits for shorter periods of time, according to their needs. These permits are generally less expensive than those reserved for non-residents and they are good for the entire fishing season.
Permits for non-residents
Non-residents can also purchase a permit, but they will have different fees compared to residents. They can choose between a short-term permit for a quick visit, or a seasonal permit that will allow them to fish regularly throughout the season.
Seasonal permits vs. short-term permits
Those who are planning longer fishing expeditions in the province may want to opt for a seasonal permit, while those who only want to fish for a few days may choose a short-term permit. The costs will vary according to the type of permit.
Special permits for groups and youth
Quebec also offers special permits for groups, such as camps and youth organizations. These permits allow for group fishing outings. Also, there are reduced fees for youth, encouraging the next generation to explore this passion.
