Beginning this spring, the Ministry of Environment will no longer be offering walk-in service to the public in 19 ministry field offices. Assiniboia, Estevan and Weyburn are three of the locations at which front counter services will be discontinued as of May 14, and the only front-end office in the area remaining open is at Moose Mountain Provincial Park.

Clients formerly served in these locations will be encouraged to use electronic self-serve options such as by phone or online through the Hunting, Angling and Trapping Licence (HAL) system. Alternatively, hunting and angling licences can also be purchased through private vendors.

Conservation officers will remain working at the offices serving the impacted communities. 

In 2018, there were more than 409,000 hunting and angling licenses sold in the province, while the 19 impacted offices accounted for approximately two per cent of all provincial licence sales.

The change impacts 16 part-time staff and three full-time staff. The majority of the impacted offices (10) are currently only open two days a week.
