A Pleasure Craft Operator Card* (PCOC) proves that you’ve obtained the knowledge to safely operate a motorized pleasure craft on Canada’s waterways.
If you, or any of your family members operate a motorized watercraft, you need your Pleasure Craft Operator Card now. This federal law applies to all operators of motorized watercraft regardless of age, length of boat or engine horsepower – including electric trolling motors and sailboats equipped with engines. It’s the law.
Boaters who fail to carry a Pleasure Craft Operator Card* can be fined a minimum of $250 by any officer of the peace.
