But my PCOC was issued by another company?

In order for freecourse.ca to issue a replacement for a PCOC obtained from another company, the Candidate must contact Transport Canada's Office of Boating Safety and obtain from them a letter called an "Authorization to Issue a Replacement Pleasure Craft Operator Card" and then send a copy of this letter to us by mail along with $19.95 for each replacement PCOC ordered.
