There is now a requirement in Canadafor boat operators to have a certificate indicating proof of competency to operate a boat. See . This is available in a few ways.

Option 2:
Have a boater’s certificate issued in a US jurisdiction such as your home state or coast guard. Many already have this as some states have mandatory boater’s regulations. See United States Power Squadrons

Option 3:
This may be the easiest option for you if you don’t already hold a certificate. We can issue you a temporary certificate, at no cost, and only takes a few minutes. This certificate is only valid for the duration of your stay.
