A Fraser Valley Special Area Hunting Licence (FVSAHL) is required to hunt anywhere within provincial Management Unit (MU) 2-4 and those parts of MU 2-8 within Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Mission and Coquitlam. A Provincial Hunting Licence is also required, as well as a federal Migratory Game Bird Hunting Permit if migratory birds are hunted.

FVSAHL licences are available from Service BC Offices and selected sporting goods stores in the Fraser Valley.  Evidence of current one million dollar public liability and property damage insurance must be provided to obtain this licence. A FVSAHL licence is automatically invalid if the insurance coverage is not current or maintained.

For details of open seasons on wildlife and other hunting and firearms regulations, refer to the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis.
