What is a Pleasure Craft Operator Card?
In order to legally operate a motorized pleasure craft in Canada, you must be able to provide proof of competency. Unless you have completed a boating safety course in Canada prior to April 1, 1999, obtained a specified marine safety certificate issued to professional mariners, or have an applicable Rental Boat Safety Checklist, a Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC) is required as proof of competency.
