Transport Canada Small Craft Regulations

A number of people have been asking about the Transport Canada regulations.  Here is the link to the TC website:
Also attached is a summary sheet for canoe/kayaks and "sealed-hull" (Stand Up Paddle Boards) and sit on top kayaks.  Please also note the special comments at the bottom of the page that refers to flares and radar reflectors.
