Getting Your Certificate of Deletion

So, if you are wondering how to cancel boat registration, what you’re looking for is a certificate of deletion. This is a document that certifies the removal of a particular vessel’s registration from Transport Canada’s official registry. This can serve a variety of different purposes, but more than anything it allows the owner to control the end of their registration to their liking as soon as they decide they no longer want to make use of the vessel here in Canada. Because removing something from a registry is, well, a removal action, you are given a certificate as part of this process in order to show that the deletion did, in fact, take place. This way, your certificate of deletion of the vessel can serve as proof of the removal going forward.

Why Cancel Your Boat Registration?

You might want to delete a vessel from the Canadian Registry of Vessels because it’s busted, no longer working, or unsalvageable. If you can no longer use the vessel, after all, you no longer need to maintain the registration, right? There’s no point to it anymore, so getting a certificate of deletion of a vessel can be an official way to register that you are no longer making use of the vessel in question. This certificate will also come in handy when you are exporting the vessel or selling it to a foreigner who intends to register it in a different country. In fact, they themselves might need to present this certificate in order to register the vessel in a different country as proof that the vessel is no longer registered here in Canada.
