The card is valid for 3 years at a time.
Boaters in Canada are to have a certificate indicating proof of competency to operate a boat. See Transport Canada Regulations. Most jurisdictions offer one time certification of some sort. You can take the Canadian Boater’s certificate online at BoaterExam.com or the US Power Squadron version on their site. We encourage obtain a boater’s certificate but if you arrive without one, we can issue you a temporary proof of competency document. There is no cost to you and it only takes a few moments.
