The 2001 Canada Shipping Act and its associated regulations provide the regulatory framework that governs pleasure and non-pleasure vessel operations in Canada.The 2014 Recreational Boating Standard (TP15136) implemented through the Small Vessel Compliance Program for Recreational Boating Schools provides a mechanism by which schools and training operations may continue to operate without meeting the full requirements of a commercial operation.

The benefit of joining the program

Adherence to the Standard for Pleasure Boating Schools (on water training) by respecting the various educational and technical requirements proposed, as well as the school's registration in the Small Vessel Compliance Program (SVCP), grant the school a status which allows it to benefit from certain regulatory improvements, as regards:

  • The obligation to meet the certification requirements for instructors stipulated in the Marine Personnel Regulations (MPR) as to the type of certificate required,
  • The application of more severe measures in the construction of the boat;
  • The registration and registration of vessels in the Canadian Register of Vessels;
  • The number and type of safety equipment to be carried on board.
