Speed limits while boating in Ontario
Every vessel shall at all times proceed at a safe speed so that you can take proper and appropriate action to avoid a collision, and be able to stop at a safe distance, and appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions.
Age/Horsepower restrictions in Ontario
Youth under 16 years of age may not operate boats with motors over certain horsepower limits unless someone 16 years of age or older is in the boat and is directly supervising them. Youth under 16 years of age may not operate a personal watercraft (PWC) under any circumstances.
Boat registration in Ontario
You can either “license” or “register” your pleasure craft. A “licensed” pleasure craft is different from a “registered” pleasure craft.
Although there are costs involved, registration gives you some important benefits, which include proof of ownership (legal title) for your boat, the right to fly the Canadian flag, a unique name, and official number for your boat, as well as the right to use your boat as security for a marine mortgage…
Boat Safety Equipment in Ontario
Safety equipment that each type of boat must carry on board to comply with Transport Canada regulations regarding boating.
ATVs are not on-road driving vehicles, but they still require insurance. If you have an ATV in Ontario, chances are that you will use it in public areas (like roads, trails, and parking lots). Therefore, you require insurance for these vehicles, just as you do for a car.
If you are not qualified to perform annual inspections or proper maintenance then you should take all vehicles to a properly trained company or dealership to make sure the vehicle is safe before riding/ driving.
After all, if it is an off-road vehicle or boat they do not react the same as automobiles and are easier to lose control of.
For each individual vehicle, there are certain courses and graduated licenses in the province of Ontario that need to meet before operation. To see which licenses pertain to you please go to the ministry of transportations website to see your graduated license/age limit options.
