When to Access Form 9 – Application for Provisional Certificate of Registry

This situation comes about often when Canadian citizens are purchasing a vessel from the United States. You can apply to access form 9 – provisional certificate of registry so that you can bring the boat into Canada provisionally until you receive your permanent documents.
