Many people come to us at the National Vessel Registry Center asking “How do I replace a lost boat ownership in Ontario?” Well, here’s everything you need to know about the process.
How Do I Replace a Lost Boat Ownership in Ontario?
So, you’re wondering “How do I replace a lost boat ownership in Ontario?” Well, you’re probably aware that your boat’s certificate of documentation is a mandatory document for vessels here in Ontario. If you are operating your boat commercially, you need to have the certificate of registration on board. Recreationally, you’ll need your pleasure craft license. This has to be the actual certificate and not a copy or a scan of it, which means that you need to take care of the certificate so that it’s always valid. So, what happens if you lose the certificate or something happens to it? Well, you will have to get a new certificate.
Request Your Replacement Certificate of Registration
So, if you need to go through the process of requesting a replacement certificate, we can make it all easier for you. This is the kind of process that we at the National Vessel Registry Center Corp want to make easier for you. This process doesn’t have to be complicated, but it can certainly take a while, so it’s always good to take care of it as soon as possible. All you need to do is head over to the form for a boat registration replacement certificate, which you can find here on our website. Once you’ve filled out the request for a certificate, you can also submit it through our platform, making everything more convenient for you.
Replace Your Pleasure Craft Licence
Now, on the other hand, if you lose your pleasure craft license, you will have to go through a very similar process. The same principle applies in these cases, which means that you will need to have your license on board in order to operate your recreational boat here in Ontario waters. So, if you need a new license after something happened to the original, you will have to request a duplicate from Transport Canada. This is all going to be very simple, mostly consisting of you submitting the corresponding form. Just like with the previously explained process, you just need to head over to the duplicate option in our menu and fill out the form. Soon, you will receive a new official copy of the pleasure craft license so that you can continue sailing without issue.
File For a Replacement Ownership
Transport Canada documentation applications can be tedious and inconvenient to go through, but we don’t want that to be the case for you. Our platform is designed to make sure that all these processes are made easier for you, and that you have no trouble filing for any vessel documentation that you need. Not only that, but our team is always ready to provide you with the help that you need should you have any questions or doubts about any application process.
