An Introduction to Canadian Revenue Stamps

Hunting and Fishing Stamps

Hunting and Fishing revenue stamps were used to collect fees levied for the respective licences. For hunting, a generic paper licence was generally used to which one or more stamps were affixed, each representing a different species. In this way, a single licence served many different purposes at once.

The wildlife conservation stamps issued by the federal government are revenue stamps. The conservation stamps issued by provincially-based organizations, such as wildlife societies and fish and game associations, are not revenue stamps. These particular stamps are charity stamps, sold for fund-raising purposes and have no franking value.

Further information on these stamps can be found in The Hunting, Fishing and Conservation Stamps of Canada by Clayton Rubec, published August 2011 by the British North America Society Ltd.
