“The new electronic licensing program will make it easier than ever for British Columbians to go hunting and will help ensure sound wildlife management decisions support the ministry’s conservation goals.” – Steve Thomson
The BC Government is inviting bids for the design of the upgrade to an online system.
In an attempt to more effectively meet resource management objectives and ensure the health and sustainability of wildlife populations, the new program will be a central place for data collection, hunter reports and harvest information which will positively affect wildlife management, the hunting license program and the LEH system as well.
Bill Bosch, president of the BCWF says,
“The new electronic licensing system is a fundamental step forward in improving access to hunting and will help support sustainable wildlife populations by creating a reliable system to collect hunter participation and harvest information. The BCWF commends the provincial government for moving forward with this important initiative.”
