"Marine Safety Bulletin TP13699E entitled "Guidelines on Non-Passenger Bare-Boat Charter Parties" is also of some assistance in identifying whether a vessel is being used for pleasure. In this Bulletin Transport Canada makes it clear that if the owner is receiving any form of remuneration from persons being carried on board the vessel then the persons being carried are "passengers" and the vessel is not being used for pleasure. The Department allows, however, that a simple sharing of expenses will not convert a pleasure purpose to a commercial purpose."
