Did something happen to your boat registration certificate? Did you misplace your boat documentation? You will have to request a copy of the boat registration from Transport Canada. Here’s how you can do that without any problem right here on our website.
Request a Copy of the Boat Registration
When it comes to vessel documentation, it’s important to remember that no official physical copy is about the same as having no documentation at all. You always need to have your official certificate of registration at hand if you’re looking to operate your vessel at all. With this in mind, you’ll need to know how to go about it should anything happen to your certificate. Here’s all the information you’ll want to keep in mind when in need of an official copy of your boat registration.
Copy of the Certificate
It’s important to know that, when it comes to an official capacity, a mere photocopy or picture of your registration certificate will not be acceptable, whether it is when proving ownership or when asked for papers at a check-in point or a dock. Because of this, if you want to keep a copy at hand, you will have to request an official one from Transport Canada. Don’t worry, you can easily do this through our platform. Just head over to the form to request a copy of boat registration documentation, fill it all out, and pay the application fee. In a matter of days, you will be receiving the certified copy of your boat registration.
Similarly, should something happen to the official physical copy of your registration, be it that it gets lost, damaged, or misplaced, you will need to request a replacement in order for it to be valid? You don’t have to apply for registration all over again, though, since it’s not like the registry has been erased. All you need to do is submit a form to request a replacement copy of the boat registration. This process will allow you to replace the damaged or lost certificate with a brand-new, fully valid one. Remember that an altered, damaged, or missing certificate is just as good as no registration at all at an official capacity, so be sure to get your replacement if you’re planning on operating your vessel.
