Keeping in mind the registry is primarily aimed at commercial use, I suspect the decision to go for regular updates was to purge the registry of boats which are neither in existence or are not in active commercial use. Incidentally it will serve as a tax on boaters who do not keep the government up to date with their contact information, or are lazy about filing on time, as they will be forced to re-register their vessel after their registry has lapsed.

It appears the blue book publications were ended in 2003 or 2005; if your boat was registered prior to that point it's quite possible it is no longer legally registered. Registration is done through your local Ports of Registry, part of Transport Canada. You can search the current list of ships online. The listing shows Registered, Suspended, and Closed status, and some brief information about Registered vessels is available.

Thanks Amgine, what a surprise. Floating around down here blissfully unaware.

Thanks once again.
Sent them a politely nasty email.
We never received any notification of this change. Our address and phone #'s are all the same it is very annoying.

Weather is great here, in the high80's low 90's. Problem is I'm sweating rivers working on the boat to get out of here so I can be lazy again.

Canadian boat insurance is a painless exercise also. The premium on my 25 year old34' sailboat is now $700 with 100k ins and 3mil liability. I have to admit I did not really shop around (at less than a thousand how much are you really going to save?)
I simply went to a Credit Union and told them I wanted a policy - they started out at $840 and it has gone down by about $50 each of the past 3 years.
