    Heading to Ontario at the end of the month to bear hunt and fish. Taking along the small boat. I see they have a few different requirements for safety gear. Is there anything else that may be obscure that I may not know about for trailering or boating in canada?

    What about handheld signal flares at the border? Do I declare them or anything like that? Thanks for any info or experiences shared.

    Have been hauling a small boat int0 Canada for about the last 35 years and have never had any questions at the border. One stop while on the water near Wawa and all the COs wanted was to ensure we were within the fish limit. Researched other threads on this subject in the forum and as far as flares I think I remember reading of no special restrictions.
