Small Vessel Safety Guide (Canada): Vessel Categories and Purposes Mobile App
To know what requirements apply to your vessel, you must know what you are doing with it in the legal sense.
How does it work?
The Small Vessel Regulations contain safety requirements for five categories of vessels. Which requirements apply depends on the vessel’s purpose (what it is used for). If your vessel is used for more than one purpose, such as commercial fishing and carrying passengers, it must meet the applicable fishing vessel requirements when you are fishing and the requirements in the Small Vessel Regulations for passenger vessels when you are carrying passengers. Use the Small Vessel Safety Guide (Canada): Vessel Categories and Purposes mobile app to ensure you follow the proper regulations.
