Guide II Licence (Licence to Accompany)
As a general rule, the NB Fish and Wildlife Act requires that non-residents must be accompanied by a licensed guide to hunt game species or to fish for Atlantic Salmon. The Guide II Licence (Licence to Accompany) is designed for those who wish to provide a no-fee or no-reward guiding service to a visiting non-resident friend or relative.
Must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of New Brunswick as defined in the NB Fish and Wildlife Act. First-time applicants must successfully complete the guide exam at a DNR office.
The holder of a Licence to Accompany may hunt or fish while guiding but can only guide one client at a time. Special rules also apply to guides when accompanying clients who choose to fish from a boat. Please refer to the NB "Fish" and "Hunt/Trap" summary of regulations booklets (see below under related links) for more details concerning rules that apply to professional guides. Guide Licences expire on December 31 each year.
Contact your nearest Natural Resources office for a list of guides.
