  • Do drawings have to be AutoCAD or similar?
  • Does Transport Canada require drawings for each and every fishing boat I build?
  • What is Transport Canada’s turnaround time?
  • What are the boatbuilder’s responsibilities for plan submission to Transport Canada?
  • Should I go through the closest Transport Canada District Office and / or the Regional Office in Dartmouth?
  • What’s the cost of plan submissions?
  • Do I have to hire a P.Eng. / Naval Architect to produce the required drawings?
