Purchasing a Watercraft from Out-of-Province

New and used watercraft purchased from out-of-province can carry harmful aquatic invasive species. Zebra and quagga mussels, and other invasive species, can easily attach to boats and other water-related equipment and remain viable out of the water for many days. Some species, and their eggs, can survive out of water for several weeks.

If you will be bringing a new boat, kayak, canoe, lift or dock home from out-of-province, be sure to clean, drain and dry the boat and/or equipment to ensure it is free of aquatic invasive species before traveling home. You are responsible for ensuring your watercraft and/or equipment is free of AIS. Call the Ministry of Environment Client Service Office (1-800-567-4224) to arrange a time and place to have your new watercraft inspected. Watercraft inspection stations are set up along major highways on the Saskatchewan/Manitoba and Saskatchewan/U.S. borders from May to September/October. In the off-season, arrangements can be made for an inspection by calling the Client Service Office.
