Need a boating license in Ontario?

With over 400,000 rivers, lakes and streams to explore, Ontario is a wonderland that meets any pleasure boater's demands, from the novice to the experienced boating enthusiast. Boasting shorelines on four of the five Great Lakes (Lakes Ontario, Superior, Erie and Lake Huron), the St. Lawrence River and the Thousand Islands, as well as the smaller waterways in Ontario, all avid anglers, waterskiers and jet-skiers will enjoy their favorite activity to their heart's delight!

Wherever you may be boating in Ontario, you get some of the most magnificent scenery that the planet has to offer, but remember, you need your boating license, whether for personal watercraft, motorized boats with any type of motor, including electric motors, wakeboard boats, pontoons, houseboats, fishing boats, boats for waterskiing etc. Otherwise, you risk a $250 fine. It's the law, in Canada and in Ontario!

The boating license is valid in Ontario and in the rest of Canada.
