I purchased my license online way back in February for June 2-9. Has anyone been able to get their money back?

I put your question to the MNR:


Thank you for your email.

A refund can be submitted for consideration. They would need to provide the credit card type used and the last 4 digits. This process can take 4-6 weeks. If approved they will see the refund on the credit card statement.

I require them to email (ATTN: LEEANNE) with their outdoors card numbers, as well as the information above.

Their current licences would be invalidated, if their 8 days have not already expired. We cannot offer refunds on expired products as these licences are downloadable and instant use.

Licenses purchased by non-residents of Canada prior to March 17, 2020 may be considered on a case-by-case basis, as the Canada/US border closed on March 17, 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Their 8 day licences should not have expired yet

If you require further assistance please contact one of our representatives at the toll free numbers below.

We are currently in our peak season. Call volumes are typically higher early in the week, particularly after the weekend. The best time to reach us is Monday-Friday at 8:30am EST. Callers may receive busy signals and disconnects because of the call volume.

That's encouraging to see. I assumed you would be out of luck.
