All permits will be sold online only. This initiative will ensure that all relevant information is provided to the Ministry of Transportation. It will also relieve the burden placed on our volunteers and permit vendors, both of whom spent countless hours doing paperwork, reconciliation and data entry in order to ensure that everything was properly documented.

Multi day permits are printed on a local printer and will need to be affixed to the sled in a manner similar to that of a “Try Our Trails” permit.
If you do not have your original permit consumers must first file a police report.
Lost Permits – Online Reporting
In order to get a replacement permit, consumers must first file a police report.
The Ontario Provincial Police have an online reporting system which will assist permit buyers in reporting a lost or stolen permit. There are some exceptions to this as the individual filing the complaint must reside within an OPP jurisdiction.
The reporting site is very self explanatory and helpful when explaining the process to anyone looking to get a replacement permit.
