Fur Farming

Fur farming in British Columbia is legislated by the Animal Health Act and its Fur Farm Regulation. This Act includes licencing of mink, marten, fischer, fox, nutria and chinchilla.

Licences are renewed annually from April 1 to March 31 of the following year and the licence fee is $12.00 for 1-25 animals, or $24.00 for 26 or more animals.
