Editor's Notes

  • Before I talk about lifejackets explain that in Canadian regulations we still refer to what is tested for turning as a lifejacket and what is not as a PFD

    Adopted Level 70 with policy
    Now consulting on Level 50 and youth inflatable
    Revived discussion of requirements for wear
    CMAC in November I believe that we will be discussing both of wear requirements and Level 50 and youth inflatable – likely a proposal on the last two

    Options to encourage wear of lifejackets
    Requirement to wear in environmental conditions or circumstances that could jeopardize the safety of persons on board
    Many small boats that were having to carry both lifejacket and PFD
