Request a Copy of Boat Registration if Your Certification is Lost or Damaged

Copy of Boat Registration

Your documentation always needs to be in good shape if you wish to operate your vessel commercially in Canadian waters. If you lose it, you need to request a copy of boat registration. Here’s how you can do that.

Requesting a Copy of the Boat Registration

In accordance with Transport Canada regulations, your certificate of registration will always have to be in good condition in order for it to be deemed valid by the corresponding transportation authorities. If your certificate gets damaged, ripped, or anything in between, it will no longer be valid. The same thing applies when your certificate gets lost, in which case you have to get it replaced. The good news is that everything that you need is right here at the National Vessel Registry Center platform. Let’s go over the process of requesting a copy of the boat registration for your documentation.

Why Get a Copy of Your Registration?

As you might already be aware, since you are a vessel owner here in Canada, you need to have your certificate of registration on you at all times when operating your commercial boat. This means that if something happens to your certificate, you will need to get it replaced. A mere photocopy of the certificate or a picture of it won’t be enough for it to be seen as valid by the authorities. Because of this, should your certificate get damaged or misplaced, you will have to request an official copy of the boat registration so that you can continue to operate without issue. Everything you need to take care of this will be right here on our website. 

Request Replacement Certificate

In order to request a copy of the boat registration, you will have to go through the process of getting a replacement certificate from Transport Canada. This is all pretty straightforward, but it still requires some attention to detail. You can head over to that option here on our menu and fill it out right here on our platform. Once you’re done with that, you simply have to pay the application fee and submit it through our website. It will only be a matter of days before you receive the new official copy of your certificate, which will serve as your registration going forward. All the registration forms you might need will be readily available right here on our site.
