Eligibility details

To hunt migratory game birds in Canada, you are required to possess a valid federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit (or e-Permit) with an affixed (or printed image of a) Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp. Please note that you must verify the provincial/territorial regulations pertaining to hunting and the carrying of firearms for the province/territory where you will be hunting migratory game birds. Hunters who also wish to receive a physical copy of the stamp by mail can do so by checking a box when purchasing their e-Permit. There is no additional charge for shipping the stamp. The physical stamp is not required to validate the e-Permit.

For information on the Migratory Bird Convention Act, 1994 and Regulations, please visit Environment and Climate Change Canada's Website. If you are in need of further information on the Act or its regulations, please contact the Environment and Climate Change Canada Inquiry Center at 1-800-668-6767.

Revenues from the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp, which is affixed to the Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit, are dedicated to conserving habitat. Philatelic products are available and can be purchased through Wildlife Habitat Canada. To date, over 1,500 conservation projects across Canada have been supported through the sale of the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation stamp.
