Important information from Transport Canada.
Remember not to use your private pleasure craft in an uncertified commercial capacity. Fines can result! Pleasure crafts are not designed or licenced to be operated as commercial vessels.
Numerous fines were issued to an individual for illegally operating a privately owned pleasure craft as an uncertified commercial tour boat. This activity directly contributed to a fatal boating incident on Lake Simcoe in September 2020. Don’t let this happen to you – https://www.canada.ca/en/transport-canada/news/2021/07/transport-canada-issues-fines-for-illegal-operation-of-a-pleasure-craft-as-an-uncertified-commercial-tour-boat.html
