COVID-19 — restrictions and closures that could impact fishing and hunting
Last modified on January 13th, 2021 at 1:32 pm
On January 14th, 2021 Ontario will enter into a second provincial emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act (EMPCA) to curb the rising number of COVID-19 cases.
This lockdown is similar to the initial provincial emergency that was implemented in the spring; however, the government has not announced any no closures to Crown land or outdoor spaces as there was in the spring. The majority of parks and outdoor recreational areas remain open to the public for angling and hunting, unless closed by a Conservation Authority or municipality. We know that many of you continue to have questions related to the impact that COVID-19 has had and continues to have on your outdoors pursuits. The OFAH will continue to monitor this situation and communicate any significant changes to our membership.
Please follow all safety requirements laid out by the Province, check with your local health unit for local advice, and check with the landowner of the properties you wish to access for any potential restrictions before going hunting or fishing. Please visit www.ofah.org/safetytips for more information.
If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward it to the appropriate contact.
NOTE: If you learn of any closures or local access restrictions that are a result of these COVID-19 restrictions, please notify us through e-mail at email@example.com.
