      • No coaching will be given during the testing and standards are strictly enforced.

Q: How do I get my Fish & Wildlife ID (FWID)

If you pass,  you will receive your BCWF Registration form which you can either mail into the BCWF or walk into their office during their regular business hours and pay a $30.00 fee to obtain a certificate of completion.

With the certificate of completion, you can go into a Service BC  to have them set your FWID up for you. Or you can go onto the BC government website here and create a Basic BCeID to set up your  FWID. This can take a couple business days to have completed as they need to verify your ID online (you’ll need to upload one piece of government-issued photo ID.

There is no fee to set up a FWID and this allows you to purchase hunting tags and apply for Limited Entry Hunting.
