Considering this, do you need a license to drive a boat in Ontario?
Unlike driving a car, you do not need a driver's license or a boater's license to operate a pleasure craft. This card is proof that you have successfully completed an approved boating safety course that is required for pleasure craft operators in Ontario and other provinces.
Similarly, can you get a boat license without a driver license? You do not need to have a driver's license to operate a boat, but you need your boating license.

Is the Canada Boating Licence the same as the permanent Pleasure Craft Operator Card? No. Because the Pleasure Craft Operator Card does not expire and does not need to be renewed, it is not called the Canada Boating Licence.
