Other Permits and Licensing

One component of British Columbia's freshwater fisheries management is the permitting and licensing of specific fishery and commercial guided angling activities. The Permit and Authorization Service Bureau (PASB) in Victoria administers these activities with input from regional fisheries biologists. PASB also administers provincial wildlife and BC Parks permits and licences. Applications and information related to fisheries permits and licences can be viewed at the PASB website or the following link:
