A Pleasure Craft Operator Card is required to operate a power-driven boats and watercrafts in Canada - It's The Law.

What is a Pleasure Craft Operator Card?

A Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) proves that you have gained the knowledge to safely operate a motorized pleasure craft on Canada's waterways.

Who needs a PCOC?

  • Federal law in Canada mandated by Transport Canada
  • All operators of motorized vessels regardless of age, size of boat or engine horsepower
  • No grandfather clause or age exemption
  • Boaters caught with the card face a minimum $250.00 fine.

This applies to all persons who operate a powered watercraft fitted with any size or type of motor - even trolling and electric motors.  The PCOC is the most common proof of competency in Canada.

Every person who operates a motorized boat in Canada must obtain proof of competency.  You can obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card by passing Transport Canada Accredited boating safety test.  Getting your Operator Card proves that you are a competent boater and ensures that you understand Canada's navigation rues and how to boat safely.

Boaters can obtain their official Pleasure Craft Operator Card, commonly known as a boat license or boat card, by successfully passing the BOAT smart! exam.  Click on the link below to get yours now!
