Starr Basin Lottery

Message from Joanna Lee, FLANRO

Hi all,

Applications for the 2021-2022 Telkwa winter lottery system will be open from October 20- November 20, 2021. The attached documents describe how to apply for a permit. Please read them carefully for instructions on how to apply, prior to responding with questions. You can email your fillable application form (attached) to with subject line “Winter 2020-2021 Telkwa Lottery application (insert applicants name)”. Applications will not be accepted after November 20, 2021.  Hard copies of applications will also be available at the FrontCounter BC Office in Smithers. The hours of operation are currently Tuesday-Thursday from 10:00am-3:00pm (closed over lunch from 12:00-1:00). You can direct questions to myself or Mark Wong (

If your name is randomly selected through the lottery and you do not have any outstanding fines for violations under the Wildlife Act, you will be issued Part 1 of the permit. Even if you are successfully chosen to receive a permit, this does not guarantee you will be able to access the Telkwa Mountains as caribou may be in the area (see permit instructions for more information). We have added the option to include a secondary permit holder to each permit in the event the primary permit holder gets sick or injured. We will be asking for your secondary permit holder name and information once results are released (December 1, 2021). Please note: Individuals can only be secondary permit holders for no more than two primary permit holders.

Successful applicants will be forwarded login information to the online web portal where permit holders can view up to date caribou locations.

Please be mindful of the fact that future opportunity and implementation of the lottery system may be affected by compliance throughout the 2021-2022 season. Do your part, abide by the rules, and follow the permit conditions. Otherwise you are putting the permitting system at risk.
