Canada’s laws prohibit anyone from operating a pleasure craft while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The Criminal Code of Canada states that anyone who operates a pleasure craft, whether or not it is in motion, commits an offence if:

  • The person’s ability to operate the boat is impaired due to alcohol, drugs, or any combination of alcohol and drugs or…
  • The alcohol concentration in the person’s blood exceeds 80 mg of alcohol in 100 ml of blood.
