Important Updates Regarding Fisher's Registration Card (FRC) Issues
UFAWU-Unifor has become aware of critical issues pertaining to the Fisher's Registration Card (FRC) process.
Missing FRC Payment
Some UFAWU-Unifor members have encountered an error when logging into their FRC accounts in which the option to pay their necessary FRC fees is missing.
If you log into your FRC account and the payment option is missing, we recommend taking the following steps:
- In your NOLS account, click on the "Submit Request" tab.
- From the drop-down menu at the top, select "FRC."
- In the available text box, write "URGENT — UPLOAD PAY FEES OPTION"
- Finally, click the submit button at the bottom of the page.
After completing the above steps, we recommend sending an email to the fishing-peche account. In the email header, write "PACIFIC REGION — URGENT FRC REQUEST."
In the body of the email, explain that your FRC does not have the pay fees option available. Additionally, include your name, birthdate, and FIN if you have it.
UFAWU-Unifor members have also reported delays in their FRC applications. According to DFO, these delays are the result of incorrect or incomplete FRC documentation being uploaded by users.
To avoid delays, it is very important that all FRC documents are submitted correctly.
DFO offers three step-by-step guides for obtaining an FRC — select the guide that applies to you and follow the instructions:
