When you own a boat in Canada, whether it is a small craft or a large one, if the vessel is used strictly for recreational and pleasure purposes, you have the option of licensing your boat or registering it with Transport Canada. There are differences between licensing and registration and becoming part of the registry can be important to you. Any craft that wishes to carry a mortgage must be registered, so unless you are paying for your vessel in full at the time of purchase, you may need to familiarize yourself with the registration process. Becoming part of the Canadian register of vessels is easy to do when you know the best way to go about it.
Following the Transport Canada Register Method
Registration is available to you by going through the Transport Canada website. You can go to the site and work your way through the different pages so that you can locate the appropriate form you need to begin the registration process. You will want to have easy access to certain information about your boat that you will be required to enter. You also need to provide supporting documentation, like proof ownership, proof of Canadian citizenship, and other documentation. To finish the process off, you will also need to print and fill out the payment form to mail in.
