Get Your Boat License

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 understand Canada's navigation rules and how to boat safely.

Boaters can obtain their official Pleasure Craft Operator Card, commonly know as a boat license or boat card, by successfully passing the BOATsmart! exam.
