What to Know about Registration of a Government Vessel

Form 7 - Mortgage

If you happen to be an owner of a boat that is going to be used for official Canadian government purposes, there are some things that you should know. For one, it is mandatory that your vessel be registered with Transport Canada. This means that you will need to file an official Application for Registration of a Government Vessel, which is a document that will ask some information about yourself and any other owners, as well as the vessel itself.

Providing Details about Your Government Vessel

Whether you’re using your vessel for fishing, dredging, transport, passengers, or even as an air cushion vehicle, if it’s for government purposes, then Transport Canada wants to know as much about it as possible. Your application will ask some simple information, such as the vessel’s name and any existing registration information, but it will also get more in-depth. You will need to provide the type and method of propulsion, number of engines, engine power information, as well as the speed of your vessel. Other information that will be asked of you are the vessel’s measurements, tonnage information, as well as details of its build origins.
