Online trail permits now available

Recommended Posts

The system is working perfectly this morning.

 

$190.00 each for the season, plus $7.50 processing for a total of $197.50 per sled.

 

Had to deselect the "tracking" option to avoid paying an additional charge of $10 per permit.

wrightonalan: Well at least you'll be able to track your permit.

 

It seems that "tracking included" is the default. Maybe a lot of people had issues receiving their permits in the mail last year.

A lost permit during fulfillment still requires a police report, correct?

Yes. According to OFSC website the report Number, name of the recording Police Officer and email copy of your receipt. Check OFSC website for procedure.

Yes, but it is an online form, IIRC.  However, it also requires the payment for replacement permit.

I didn't check what numbers I got but our two permits are ordered and awaiting delivery. I almost missed opting out of the tracking option but caught it when I saw the total and looked back to see where the extra charge was coming from. Put the val tags on the sleds today and spent a bit of time polishing them up some more. Give me until the end of the month to get summer put away then bring on the snow.

They have, it was agreed at agm to a price increase of 10$. Submitted to the MTO for approval and well I guess they approved it.

Do you like the app?  Just went back to android this year after having a blackberry for a few years.  Reviews on Google Play are not stellar when it comes to the android version

They also IIRC never charged processing fee after Nov 1.  This year it is added at all times.

If I recall there was a negotiation with the 3rd party last year, that came down to the wire where they wanted a substantial increase to the processing fee. That was rumoured to be connected to them not getting a processing fee after the discounted permit period and their revenues would be based on the early discounted permit only. Perhaps this is the result of that negotiation which resulted in them not increasing the early season processing fee since they would collect a processing fee on all permits processed.

More like permits never making it to the purchaser. Lost in the mail, stolen, undeliverable etc etc. This is a way for the OFSC to say you opted out of tracking . You can't use the excuse you didn't know you could track permits...
