Sunday Hunting

Sunday Hunting

Currently in accordance with the Ontario Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, Ontario Regulation 665/98, hunting with a gun as defined under the Act is prohibited in all municipalities south of the French and Mattawa Rivers on Sundays. However, a municipality may choose to file an application with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) to be included on the list of municipalities where Sunday gun hunting is permitted under Ontario Regulation 663/98, Part 7. Twice annually, an amendment is made to the provincial Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, which adds the names of municipalities that have formally requested Sunday gun hunting.
