    Description

    To purchase an Alberta sportfishing licence online, you will need:

    • a valid credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express)
    • an email address (to receive up-to-date information about Alberta regulations)
    • a Wildlife Identification Number (WIN).

    If you don’t have a WIN, you can apply for a Wildlife Identification Number online (or renew an existing one or replace a card) before purchasing a fishing licence. On the application, you will be asked to provide a driver’s licence number, health care card number or Canadian passport number to verify your identity.
