Arrival Into Canada

DYC is considered a marine port of entry that private pleasure craft operators may report by telephone if returning to or visiting Canada.


Vessels arriving into Canada site shall immediately call the Canadian Telephone Reporting Centre.  If reporting at a site, only the boat master may leave the vessel until authorization is given by the Border Agency. Once cleared, you will be given a number with date/time of arrival location. (Note: it is suggested you keep clearance numbers for 12 months.) Once in Canada, vessels may be subject to future inspections.
