"First of all, in Canada, although
a pleasure craft is not required
by law to have a maritime VHF
radio, these modern transceivers
are now so inexpensive and
reliable, it's a great safety
feature on any boat."
MARITIME RADIO OPERATING CERTIFICATE
- YOUR PERSONAL RADIO OPERATOR'S PERMIT
First of all, in Canada, although a pleasure craft is not required by law to have a maritime VHF radio, these modern transceivers are now so inexpensive and reliable, it's a
great safety feature on any boat. Radio transmitting equipment in Canada must be certified under the applicable Canadian Radio Standard Specifications for use in Canada.
In Canada, look for a label with an "IC Type Approval Number" label on the radio. This
number is not the same as the FCC number which is required in USA.
For Canadian pleasure craft operators to legally use Maritime Radio in Canada, an
operator's certificate of proficiency (ROC-M) is required by law. This plastic card is
valid for your lifetime and is issued exclusively to individual Canadian pleasure craft
operators by Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP). Every member of your
crew needs to have their own ROC-M card. When they study the CPS-ECP material
to receive it, they'll also become well-trained radio operators. Why not get your whole
crew to sign up for a CPS-ECP radio class next fall or winter, have some fun together,
and have everyone on your boat become certified in Maritime Radio? Marine Radio
and other pleasure boating classes are regularly held by the local CPS-ECP squadron
in locations convenient to your home or workplace. Here's where to find the CPS-ECP
Marine Radio class nearest you.

CRUISING AWAY FROM CANADA?
YOUR BOAT MAY NEED A RADIO LICENCE TOO
Although it's not required for Canadian pleasure craft in Canada, should you and your
pleasure craft ever cruise to the United States, or even further away to foreign countries, legal radio requirements change. In addition to the mandatory ROC-M operating
certificate for each radio operator on your boat, there's a second legal requirement to
obtain and carry your vessel's own Maritime Mobile Radio Station licence. This is a
paper certificate which permits you to use marine radio equipment when sailing outside Canadian waters, and it includes your official maritime radio callsign. Industry
Canada can issue your vessel's marine radio station licence which must be renewed
on-line annually. Here are links for further information.

Do you find all of this a bit confusing? Well it certainly can be. However, if you
attend the CPS-ECP radio classes to receive your personal lifetime ROC-M, you'll be
well on your way to becoming an expert marine radio operator and be very well-suited
to help other boaters better understand what's going on with their own boat's VHF
radio. Spread the word. Marine VHF radio on Canadian pleasure craft is a powerful
life saving device, and its fun to use too! *
