Boating Regulations

The latest regulations for the Canada Shipping Act 2001 are posted here:

Vessel Pollution and Dangerous Chemicals Regulations

The requirements for sewage containment onboard, and transfer off, pleasure craft are included. Boats operating on Sylvan Lake are expected to comply with the law.

That’s a hard to do when the only commercial marina on the lake has no capability to pump out marine holding tanks. Vacuum truck service is available however that is a rare practice in the rest of the boating world.
