New requirement for the delivery of a Lake Memphremagog User Certificate

FOR ALL PLEASURE CRAFT USING A MOTOR OF 10 HP AND OVER:

To obtain your User Certificate for a fishing boat, power boat, yacht, jet ski, or motorized craft (10 Hp and over), you must present the Pleasure Craft Licence delivered by Transport Canada proving that you are the owner of the craft.

The purpose of this new procedure is to prevent the registration of boats owned by non-residents.

The main purpose of the User Certificate is to protect Lake Memphremagog from harmful invasive aquatic species such as Eurasian milfoil (the Zombie plant) and zebra mussels.
