Lifejacket / PFD Approval
All Canadian lifejackets and PFDs must bear an approval label stating that the equipment has been approved by one or a combination of the following agencies :
- The Department of Transport Canada;
- The Department of Fisheries and Oceans;
- The Canadian Coast Guard.
A non-Canadian resident may use a PFD or lifejacket from their homeland provided it is in good working order and meets that country’s standards.
