Fish & Wildlife ID (FWID) – Update

The Fish & Wildlife ID (FWID) is a passport to hunting services in British Columbia. 

You need a FWID to apply for Limited Entry Hunting or to buy a hunting licence.

Your FWID is a permanent number linked to your personal online profile. It replaces the old B.C. Resident Hunter Number card. If you already have a Hunter Number, your new FWID will be the same number with three extra digits.

Your legal name must appear on your Fish and Wildlife profile. Nicknames are not acceptable. You can make changes to your personal information (Name or Gender) at any time. If you are making a change, you will be required to provide supporting documentation, whether you make the change online or at a Service BC or FrontCounter BC location.

The FWID is not a card. You can either print it or download a copy onto your mobile device. You must carry or know your FWID number while you are hunting in B.C.  Conservation Officers can ask you to provide photo ID and your FWID number, so they can find and view your profile on their mobile devices.

There is no cost to get a FWID.

If you have forgotten your Hunter Number or FWID, contact a FrontCounter BC Customer Service Assistant.
