Do you need a Saskatchewan boating licence?

Imagine a beautiful, clear sunshiny summer day, and you are out in the power boat enjoying one of your favorite activities on one of Saskatchewan's 100,000 lakes and rivers. Houseboating, jet-skiing, casting a line for your favorite fish, waterskiing, or just on an excursion to obseve the wild and wonderful scenery, you'll find it all, whether you are on Lac la Plonge, Burntwood Lake, Lac La Ronge or one of Saskatchewan's two major rivers, the North and the South Saskatchewan Rivers.

But remember, all operators of motorized recreational watercraft must have proof of competency in Saskatchewan and the rest of Canada. It is mandatory regardless of age or type and size of motor used. You need it whether it is a jet-ski, motor boat, houseboat, pontoon boat or any other recreational vessel that is equipped with a motor.
