Families can ice fish for free during the upcoming Family Day weekend.

From Feb. 15 to 17, residents of all ages can enjoy fishing in Ontario without having to purchase a licence or carry an Outdoors Card.  

Family Day weekend is the first of four licence-free fishing opportunities in 2020.

"Our government is making it easier for families to spend quality time together while enjoying Ontario's world-class lakes, rivers and streams," said John Yakabuski, Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry. "We have made life more affordable by doubling the number of free fishing events to also include the Mother's Day and Father's Day weekends."
