Where do I renew a permanent CRD Dog Licence?

All you have to do is Renew!

With the permanent CRD dog licences all you have to do is renew the number each year. You will not receive a new tag number and the database will always be up to date. A permanent CRD dog licence is a heart shaped silver tag that states 'permanent dog tag annual validation required' on the back. There are no other types of CRD dog licences.

You can renew your CRD Permanent tag in the following ways:

  • Online using online banking and the account number on your invoice (starts with 8)
  • At your financial institution (bring your invoice into the bank to pay)
  • By phone (250.478.0624 or 1.800.665.7899 extension 0) with a credit card
  • By email
  • In person*

You will not be issued a new licence at the time of renewal as you would already have a permanent tag (silver heart, permanent dog tag on back), unless you require a replacement.

*Where you can renew your CRD dog licence in person:
