Flotation Devices

By law, all canoes are required to have  at least one lifejacket or personal flotation device (PFD) for everyone onboard.  The inside label must read “Approved by Department of Transport Canada” or “Approved by Canadian Coast Guard, Department of  Fisheries and Oceans”. The only exception is if you are visiting from another country and you brought your own lifejacket.

Here we’ll give a description of the  different types of flotation devices.
