Canada's Boating and Alcohol Laws

 

The Criminal Code of Canada prohibits:

  • Operating a boat anywhere in Canada while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Operating a boat in Canada with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in excess of 80 mg
  • Failing or refusing to comply with a demand from an enforcement officer to submit a blood sample 

If you drink–don’t drive. The same applies whether you’re driving a car, boat, or any other type of motorized vehicle. Consuming alcohol, drugs, or other controlled substances will not only put your own life at risk, but will also risk the lives of your fellow boaters.
