Welcome to Parry Sound

Four Seasons

The World-Renowned Jewel of the 30,000 Islands on Georgian Bay

The world is full of spectacular locations, but there is only one place you can really have it all:  breathtaking vistas, fresh water and warm hospitality are what make Parry Sound the four-seasons playground of the near North.

Nestled on the rugged shores of Georgian Bay, and home to the Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts and Bobby Orr Hall of Fame, the Town of Parry Sound is just a short two-hour drive north of the Greater Toronto Area.

Tucked among the 30,000 islands, Parry Sound is adorned by the natural beauty of shoreline hiking trails, and the rugged pink granite of the Canadian  Shield.  This year-round destination is also home to many festivals, events and attractions.

When you browse your way through the many shops, you will discover distinctive galleries while experiencing the unique flavour of local artisans.  After a full day of fun, you will be ready to relax and bask in the glow of the glorious Georgian Bay sunsets.

Parry Sound - the community that offers it all!

Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC)

Canadians are required by law to have proof of competency when operating a motorized watercraft. The PCOC is the most common proof of competency in Canada.

There are a number of Course Providers that offer testing for Pleasure Craft Operator Competency.  These companies are independently owned and are accredited by Transport Canada.  Some course providers offer in-class courses, with testing at the end of the session while others offer on-line testing.  Prior to taking the test on-line, a person is required to study several modules of information and practice tests.  When they successfully complete the modules, the final test can be taken.

Please check out this link provided by Transport Canada for a list of Accredited Course Providers.

And happy boating!
