Hello all! and Need Help!

Hi all, I am so glad to be here. I just saw someone launched their air pumped boat in Lake Ontario(Canada). They said non-motored boat does not need any license, and can be launched anywhere. I just want to make sure if it is true in Toronto, Canada. I am planning to buy a 3m long air pumped boat if there is no requirements for any license or insurance. I am still a high school student and don't have much money in hand, is it really all i need to do is buy a air pumped boat, a pair of paddle, a life jacket and that is it in order to go out a lake like Lake Ontario?
It would be even better if anyone know a good place to buy that kind boat and the price range.
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
-Rong

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Rong.

An inflatable boat, without engine, does not require a license/registration, and it's operator does not require an operator's license (Pleasure Craft Operator Card), in Ontario.

Hi Rong Guo,

This is legally all you need.
Just remember to bring some good jugement: without an engine you might find it not so easy to bring an inflatable back to the shore if the wind blows against you.
Have fun and fair winds!
