April 4, 2019 - Pleasure Craft License
Many people fail to take advantage of licensing their Pleasure Craft in Canada. The Small Vessel Regulations require Pleasure Craft with engine power of 10 hp. (7.5 kW) or greater, to obtain a Vessel License. However, any Pleasure Craft operator in Canada may obtain a free Pleasure Craft License for their vessel. The benefits to the boat operator is having their vessel and contact details accessible to Search and Rescue personnel. The ability to contact the holder of the vessel license for a vessel located adrift or wrecked, can mean the difference between an efficient and successful search and rescue operation and a prolonged operation attempting to determine if life is at risk. Keep your Vessel License details up to date to ensure Search and Rescue personnel can contact you quickly in the event of an incident. Pleasure Craft License On-Line Application.

Visit the Government of Canada Weather site to familiarize yourself with the Marine VHF weather channel for your area of operation. If you don’t have access to a VHF radio, boaters should check the local weather reports on their phone.
