Boating during the Pandemic

In 2020, the Government of Canada strongly recommended that non-essential travel be avoided wherever possible to reduce pressure on first responders and search and rescue operations. In spite of this, boating activity (and boat sales) surged across Canada, mainly because it's easier to "physically distance" from other people while enjoying the mental benefits of being on the water. A win-win. By the end of 2022, the special regulations concerning COVID-19 proof of vaccination and testing had been dropped.
