The BOATsmart! Pleasure Operator Card.

WHO NEEDS A BOATsmart! Pleasure Craft Operator Card?

All motorized boat operators in Canada must have proof of competency, such as a Pleasure Craft Operator Card, (more commonly known as a boating license) regardless of age, length of boat or engine horsepower, other than in waters of the Northwest Territories and Nunavut.

Operating without proof of competency can result in a $250.00 fine.

If your boat is equipped with a motor, even those smaller than 10hp or an electronic trolling motor, you need the card.
