In Canada, anyone operating a boat with a motor for pleasure, must have a proof of competency approved by Transport Canada
All operators of all ages must have their Pleasure Craft Operator Card (Boating License) to operate any type of pleasure craft equipped with a motor (even electric motor), including personal watercrafts. The fine for not having the required proof of competency (Pleasure Craft Operator Card) while operating a motor boat or personal watercraft is $250 (doesn’t include administrative fees).
