About Us BOATsmart! Canada educates recreational boaters. Our mission is to promote the safe, enjoyable and environmentally friendly use of Canada's waterways. We help Canadians boat with confidence! Our focus is more than simply certifying boaters online. BOATsmart! Canada is the only Course Provider in Canada that regularly offers on-water training programs for boaters. Each summer season our Safe Boating Teams visit with Canada's recreational boaters on the water through our "courtesy stop" program to create awareness for boating safety and help ensure boaters are properly equipped. Visit with a BOATsmart! Safe Boating Team at more than 190 events each season to learn about safe boating practices and take your Pleasure Craft Operator Card exam. The BOATsmart! Canada program has been adopted by school boards across Canada and we are proud to work with partners such as the Canadian Safe Boating Council, Provincial Marine Operators Associations and the Federation of Ontario Cottage Associations to promote boating safety and accident prevention. BOATsmart! Canada's award winning educational materials are available to Canadian boaters nationally through Home Hardware Stores and your local marine retailer. We are proud to be the only Course Provider selected by Canada's marine industry to represent recreational boating and the Discover Boating lifestyle campaign. Transport Canada has authorized BOATsmart! Canada to provide official boating safety courses, educational materials, safe boating license exam and to issue Pleasure Craft Operator Cards (commonly known as a boating license) to recreational boaters in Canada.
