Clarification on New Canadian Coast Guard Boating Regulations
Due to the fact that there has been lot of misinformation floating around regarding the new Canadian Coast Guard Boating Regulations this is a basic explanation of what is required of non resident's of Canada in order to operate a pleasure craft in Canada.
If you are bringing your own boat to Canada all that is required of you is whatever your state requires for safety equipment as well as boater operator training. Unless you or your boat are in Canada for more than 45 consecutive days,you must have a Canadian Coast Guard Approved "Pleasure Craft Operators Card", as well you must have all of the safety equipment required by the Canadian Coast Guard. To get a Pleasure Craft Operators Card there are a number ways to get one, one of the easiest would be to go online and take the Boat exam online.
If you are renting a boat in Canada. The person or organization renting the boat must have you read and fill in a "Boaters Safety Checklist" upon doing that take you down to the boat and give you a on site orientation on the operation of the boat, as well as location of all safety equipment as well as how to use this equipment. (We at Bonny Bay have been doing this for a number of years, as well we will give you a copy of the checklist to take in the boat with you so that if requested you may present it to authourities.)
So in other words for most persons coming to Canada boating there are no changes in the way you go boating in Canada.
