Laws and regulations
All buoys for lakes, rivers and streams are regulated by the Canadian Aids to Navigation System. Their technical regulations for formats and identification are established by the Canadian Coast Guard and Transport Canada and the Private Buoy Regulations.
When a private buoy does not meet legal standards, authorities, such as the Canadian Coast Guard, Transport Canada or any peace officer, may order you to modify it to meet current standards or remove it. Finally, it is important to note that any non-compliant buoys risk invalidating the civil liability coverage of your insurance.
