Hunting & Fishing
Hunting is allowed within the county subject to some restrictions. No person has the right to enter private property to hunt unless the landowner grants permission. Also, under Provincial Regulations, it is an offence to discharge a firearm within 183 metres (200 yards) of any occupied building in the County.
Hunting of any kind is not permitted on any municipal/environmental reserve or on County recreation lands.
For more information, contact Community & Protective Services at 780-968-8400.
