Starting March 1, 2019, the AGCO will shift the expiry date for all individual Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse racing licences to the licensee’s or applicant’s birthdate.

To facilitate this change, individual licences issued in 2019 will expire on a licensee’s birthday in 2020.  In most cases, this will mean an extension of the licensing period and a licence fee that is pro-rated to include the additional months. The fee will be based on how many months a licence will be extended to reach the licensee/applicant’s birthdate in 2020.

For more information on how this will affect your licence expiry date and 2019 licensing fee, please see the 2019 pro-rated fee schedule (PDF format also available). This is a one-time change for 2019 individual renewals and applications.

Licence fees are due in full at time of issuance. Fees can be paid by cash, cheque, debit or credit card (not available at all locations). Pre-requisites are required for obtaining various licences.

*The Initial Claims process also includes the application and fees for an Owner’s licence.

Cheque or money orders are payable to the Minister of Finance.

Please contact the AGCO Head Office for rate of exchange for payment in US funds.

Reciprocal licensing is not currently available in Ontario.
