FREE Transport Canada Boat Registration

There are several sites that come up when you search getting boat registration numbers.  However, many of them charge you a fee to do so.

This is a direct link to Transport Canada's site.  You will not be asked to pay.  It is free of charge.

Upon completion, you will be issued your new registration numbers.  We stock a full assortment of universal registration stickers.

If you prefer to have a custom set made up for you, please email us.  We will require your assigned registration number, the font and colour of the decal material.  All custom decals are final sale.
