Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit


To hunt migratory game birds in Canada, you must have a valid federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit (or e-Permit) with an affixed (or printed image of a) Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp.

You can purchase 2018 permits here, beginning August 7, 2018. They will also be for sale at many Canada Post outlets and through some independent vendors as of August 1, 2018.

Important information

You must know and obey the provincial or territorial hunting and firearm regulations for the province or territory where you will be hunting migratory game birds.

If you wish to receive a physical stamp by mail, check the box when buying your e-Permit. There is no additional charge for shipping the stamp. The physical stamp is not required to validate your e-Permit.

If you need more information about the act or its regulations, please contact the Environment and Climate Change Canada Inquiry Center at 1-800-668-6767.

Funds raised from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp go to Wildlife Habitat Canada (WHC), a national, charitable, non-profit conservation organization. They have received over $50 million so far, and have used this money to fund more than 1,500 projects. You can also purchase stamp collecting and fine art products through WHC.
