Temporary Card

What is the temporary operator card?

The temporary pleasure craft operator card (boating licence) is temporary electronic or paper proof that a person has passed the Transport Canada exam and can legally operate a pleasure craft on Canadian waters. Temporary certification is valid for three months from when you pass the exam and allows you to operate a pleasure craft while you wait for your official and permanent pleasure craft operator card from Transport Canada.
