Government of New Brunswick

Your information such as name, address and contact information will be collected once when you FIRST access e-Licensing. You can do this in advance or when you purchase a licence.

At this time you will be assigned a unique Outdoors Card number. This number will always be displayed on your licences.


New Brunswick Residents

New Brunswick residents must have a valid New Brunswick Driver’s Licence number or New Brunswick Photo Identification number (both issued by SNB) to prove their New Brunswick residency. Your number and date of birth will be validated when entered in e-Licensing. Residency status allows you to access resident licences and draws.

If you have neither of the above, you can visit any SNB Centre to show other proof of residency. Click here to see other acceptable proof of residency.

*In 3 years, you will be required to re-enter your New Brunswick Driver’s Licence number or New Brunswick Photo Identification number to revalidate your residency status or show other proof of residency at an SNB Centre.



NB Conservation Education Card or DNR Client number

If you have a NB Conservation Education Card or a DNR Client number, this number can be entered in e-Licensing to link your profile with any previous training you have taken in the province, allowing you to purchase licences that require specific training.

A DNR Client number can be found on:

  • fuel wood, tipping, and wood cutting permit issued by DNR since 2009
  • any draw application receipts issued by DNR since 2010
  • Crown reserve licence issued since 2012
  • Conservation Education certification card issued since 2011



Email address

If you wish to purchase licences ONLINE, you will need an individual email address (not shared with anyone else including any members in your household). This is to allow an email to be sent if you forget your password and to receive electronic receipts for purchases.

DNR may occasionally send surveys to the public electronically.



Resident Moose Draw History

Your NB Resident Moose Draw History (if applicable) can be linked on a voluntarily basis to an e-Licensing profile if the NB Medicare, Department of National Defence identification number or RCMP number is provided. This allows for your previous Resident Moose Draw application history to be kept for the purpose of maintaining your priority pool. If you choose to not link your Resident Moose Draw History, you will be starting from the bottom pool (Pool 0) in the priority pools.
