Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs).
Boaters choose their safety style
(NC)—Recreational boaters have options
when it comes to lifejackets and personal
flotation devices (PFDs). Manufacturers of PFDs
now have the flexibility to incorporate comfort
and fashion, meaning you have a wider range of
approved types and colours to choose from. PFDs
come in a variety of styles and inflatable
configurations, but orange, yellow and red will
keep you most visible when in the water.
When choosing, remember
that Canadian boats must be equipped with
Canadian-approved PFDs or lifejackets of
appropriate sizes for each person on board.

lifejacket or PFD is available at www.boatingsafety.gc.ca
