Pleasure Craft Operator Card

Official Pleasure Craft Operator CardIf you're planning to boat on one of the Manitoba's lakes, motorized boaters are required to carry a Pleasure Craft Operator Card*, commonly known as a boating license.

As with all provinces in Canada, a Pleasure Craft Operator Card is required, when operating motorized vessels - regardless of age, size of boat or engine horsepower. It's the law. Manitoba boat operators caught without a Pleasure Craft Operator Card face a minimum $250 fine.

Need to get certified? The official Transport Canada Pleasure Craft Operator Card exam is available online. Manitoba boaters who take the boating license exam online can complete the official safe boating course and exam from the comfort of home. Contrary to some belief there is no separate "Manitoba Boating License", the Pleasure Craft Operator Card is approved proof of competency to operate on Canadian waterways.

Need your Operator Card today? Upon successful completion of the exam, boaters can print a temporary card immediately and the permanent Pleasure Craft Operator Card is mailed within 4-6 weeks. Once obtained, your boat Card is good for life and valid in all Canadian provinces.
