Regulating excessively loud boats

LOBA is a member of the Decibel Coalition. Since 2019 this group has been working to address the growing number of concerns we hear about excessively loud boats. The Coalition would like Transport Canada (TC) to enhance their regulations to include decibel limits on boat motor noise, as many other jurisdictions around the world have done.

What can you do?

  1. TC has launched their “Let’s Talk” web portal on boat motor mufflers and excessive noise. Review a cover letter with positioning information and your call-to-action from the Coalition; then visit the Let’s Talk web portal, review other comments, and add your comments by May 13, 2022. The Coalition is recommending “Option 5: introduce performance standards, i.e. decibel limits, for manufacturers, importers and vessel operators to follow.
  2. Write your federal MPs (waterfront & urban residences) asking them to support these regulatory changes. Use a tool on the Safe Quiet Lakes’ webpage to generate a letter to the appropriate MPs (by entering your address/postal code) that you can personalize before sending.
  3. Share this information with others.
  4. Learn more about the Decibel Coalition online, with resources such as “How do I know if my boat is too noisy?”
