Canadian Customs Eased for U.S. Boaters

21-Sep-2017

Boaters who have ever stressed about veering into Canadian waters can breathe a sigh of relief: A new tweak in Canadian law allows American recreational boaters to cross into Canadian waters without first registering with Canada Customs officials. Previously, boaters crossing the international border without first reporting their passports and watercraft information to customs faced fines or admonitions. Now, however, boaters can relax a little. Of course, it’s not a total free-for-all: Boaters who wish to dock and explore Canadian soil are still required to work with customs. The law applies to waters including Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and the Niagara River.
