By joining the North Peace Rod and Gun Club, not only do you become a member of the BC Wildlife Federation, but you also get liability insurance provided by Capri insurance in Kelowna. Included in that insurance is liability related to the use of off road vehicles (ORV) while activity engaged in hunting and angling activities.

If you are operating your ORV on a Forest Service Road you must:

  1. Wear a helmet
  2. Carry a valid driver’s licence
  3. Show proof of a minimum of $200,000 liability insurance. The Capri insurance covers this if you are hunting or angling, but be sure to carry both your BCWF membership card and the Capri Certificate of Insurance.

These rules are nothing new and are not related to the new laws regarding ORV registration that came into effect in November 2014. The government recently extended the deadline for ORV registration to November 1, 2015.
