Saskatchewan Offering Free Hunting And Angling Licences For Canadian Armed Forces Veterans

Released on March 28, 2019

In recognition of their service, Saskatchewan will provide free hunting and angling licences for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces beginning in the 2019-20 licensing year.

The new initiative applies to veterans who were honourably discharged from the Armed Forces and is available to Saskatchewan and Canadian resident veterans.

Free licences for regular hunting and angling opportunities will be available to Saskatchewan and Canadian resident veterans starting on Friday, April 12, 2019.  They do not apply to Big Game Draw licences or outfitted licence opportunities.

“The Government of Saskatchewan appreciates the commitment and sacrifices of Canadian Armed Forces veterans and will offer hunting and angling licences at no cost to recognize their contributions,” Environment Minister Dustin Duncan said.

The free licences will be subject to an initial verification process to confirm eligibility through the automated Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence (HAL) system.  Verification can be completed at a ministry field office or by emailing the required information to the ministry.

The following forms of identification will be acceptable:

  • National Defense Identification Certificate;
  • Picture or copy of Certificate of Service; and
  • Release or Discharge Certificate.
Photo identification indicating date of birth and current address is also required.  In the absence of photo identification, two pieces of acceptable identification will be required.

For electronic verification, clients must provide a valid HAL account number.  Information on how to establish a HAL account in advance of applying can be found at

For more information on this opportunity, including eligibility requirements and how to apply, please visit or call the Ministry of Environment Inquiry Centre at 1-800-567-4224.
