Boaters stopping in Canada to refuel their vessels must report their arrival to the CBSA.



Border services officer Li on screen. Text on screen: Are you refueling? Report your presence! $1000, 1-888-226-7277.

BSO Li: Are you just stopping in Canada to re-fuel your boat?

Know that you must report to the Canada Border Services Agency, even though you are just re-fueling.

The minimum fine for failing to report is $1,000, and it may also affect your immigration admissibility and ability to re-enter Canada in the future.

Report at any designated Marine Reporting Sites or at the CBSA Telephone Reporting Centre.
