The province is inviting families to participate in a week-long free fishing event. Until July 7th, Ontarians of all ages can enjoy fishing without requiring a licence.

The free fishing week is the fourth licence-free fishing opportunity this year. In 2019, the government doubled the number of free fishing events by introducing licence-free fishing on the Father’s Day and Mother’s Day weekends.

Norm Miller, MPP for Parry Sound-Muskoka says “We want to encourage families to get outdoors by providing a fun and affordable way to connect with nature and family.”

“Fishing is not only a good family activity, it is a good business as well,” Miller said. “Recreational fishing contributes $2.2 billion to Ontario’s economy annually and brings tourists to Parry Sound-Muskoka,” said Miller
