Hello All! 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.

As long as you do not have a motor of 10hp or larger, you do not need to license your boat. Check out Transport Canada:
