Your Boating License.  It's worth more than the $250 fine

Boating License Courses Available NOW in Edmonton

Edmonton is the capital of Alberta, and it is a truly wonderful place to boat or fish. Alberta has a continental climate, and this means warm summers but not too warm. Temperatures rarely get above 30 degrees Celsius and are usually quite moderate, which means it is perfect weather for boating and doing other activities outdoors. Edmonton, of course, does not have a coast, but it does have a rich park system, and it integrates many of its lakes and rivers into that system, including the Saskatchewan River.

Like the rest of Alberta, Edmonton is quite strict when it comes to boating licenses and other boating regulations. The good news is that getting your boating license in Edmonton is relatively easy. Simply register for the exam in advance, and then take the exam. If you pass, you receive your temporary license right then. They mail the permanent, renewable license to your home. In some cases, it is also possible to take the exam online, or request it via mail using an existing license. Visitors should note that most of the main boating opportunities in Edmonton are personal boating experiences, which means you will want someone with a boating license with you in order to get the most out of it. There are, however, riverboats, paddleboats, sailboats, jet skis and the like, which do not require licenses.
