Canadian Boaters Card Equivalency?

Will a holder of USCG Auxiliary Certificates for Boating Skills and Seamanship, Advanced Coastal Navigation, etc., be required to obtain a Canadian Boater's Card for cruising in Canada beyond 45 days?

It should do.

Acceptable Proof of Competency for Non-Residents

For non-residents, proof of competency can take one of three forms:

A Canadian-issued pleasure craft operator card.
A completed boat rental safety check-list (for power-driven rental boats).
An operator card or equivalent that meets the requirements of their state or country.
