Canadian Ham exam

I learned through this group that if my boat is registered in Canada, then the Ham licence (for SSB) must also be from Canada.
Does anybody know if there is are persons in the US who are qualified to administer this exam for Canada?

Radio amateurs from outside of Canada may operate within Canada with the appropriate permit. Through a reciprocal agreement*, licensed U.S. amateurs may operate in Canada with their U.S. license. Canadian amateurs may also operate in the United States with their Canadian license.

Where to contact to arrange to take the examination(s) depends on where you are. There are two ways to write the examination(s) in Canada. The first is through the Industry Canada District Office in your area, details via the:

The second way to write an exam is by contacting an "Accredited Examiner" in your area. The Industry Canada District Office has lists of these people for the area served by that office. There is also a list on the RAC website*.

Thank you.
You have again come up with a comprehensive yet focussed source. My search didn't have the focus.
Now that the house is finally up for sale, I can work on sail projects while waiting for the boat to be ready.
