Each province does its own registration and provides a CRN number which is put on the vessel nameplate. The Atlantic Canada provinces and the northern territories have joined together to use one registration organization, ACI Central. We have 13 provinces and territories, but to register across all of Canada, you must register with 7 Organizations or Jurisdictions.

Key Point: Canada’s system is really a series of provincial systems. Calling the registration system a Provincial Registration System would be more appropriate.

Key Point: You must register in EACH and EVERY province you will be using your equipment in.

See Provincial Contacts and Requirements for the jurisdictions.
