A Pleasure Craft Operator Card is required to operate power-driven boats and watercraft in Canada - It’s The Law.
Every person who operates a motorized boat in Canada must obtain
proof of competency. You can obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card by
passing a Transport Canada Accredited boating safety test. Getting your
Operator Card proves that you are a competent boater and ensures that
you understand Canada’s navigation rules and how to boat safely.
Boaters can obtain their official Pleasure Craft Operator Card,
commonly known as a boat license or boat card, by successfully passing
the BOATsmart exam! Please refer to the following link.
