Making Your Way through the Pleasure Craft Electronic Licensing System

electronic licensing system

Transport Canada has many thousands of applications for registration certificates every year, and they want to make sure that everyone can get the forms they need as quickly as possible. If this is your first time applying for a registration certificate, and you don’t know what to do, then you may need some assistance in navigating the pleasure craft electronic licensing system, and particularly the website itself. If you are not confident that you can do this yourself, then you may need to ask for expert help in getting what you want.

What the New System Means

When you are applying for a pleasure craft license, you will be able to upload the form into the website yourself. You will not be able to fax the documentation, and you must include new information in the form, such as a picture of the vessel you are registering. In addition, you will have to submit different forms depending upon whether the vessel is newly registered, is being transferred, or there are other reasons for repeating the application. Making sure that you understand what forms you are submitting and where can be essential if you want to receive your certificate promptly.

Applying Online

In addition to uploading documents and making sure that you have submitted the form correctly, Transport Canada will also allow you to receive a number, acknowledging your application. You will be given this via email, and can mark it into the side of your vessel to ensure that Coast Guards know you have applied for a license. You may also get the license itself by email before it is mailed to you, so that you can get a copy wherever you need. This system allows you to get paperwork even if you are travelling around Canada’s coastline in your yacht.
