Instead of $59.95, for a limited time you pay only $29.95 for everything (the official online boater course, the official boater exam, and the official boater license - legally called the Pleasure Craft Operator Card). Plus: You pay only AFTER you pass the official boater test. Welcome aboard!

A “powered watercraft” is any type of watercraft that is fitted with any type or size of motor (even an electric trolling motor). In all provinces in Canada, failure to carry your PCOC when operating a powered pleasure craft risks a $250 fine.

Wear It!

Failure to wear a flotation device is the leading contributing factor in boating fatalities. When on the water, the single-most important thing that you can do to prevent drowning is to always wear a properly adjusted PFD or lifejacket of appropriate type, size, and fit.
