Hunting Guide and Outfitter Licence

You must be registered with the Province as a licensed hunting guide or outfitter to charge a fee for service or to accompany more than two non-resident hunters at a time. Once registered, you may accompany maximum four non-resident hunters and cannot actively hunt while guiding. A PEI resident with a valid hunting licence may accompany up to two non-resident (licensed) hunters providing they receive no payment or other compensation for service.
