Two choices.... one is use a Canadian supplier, like Binnacle.ca or two, order them from a US Supplier and have them delivered to a US address and then bring them across the border as personal items.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If he does the latter they probably won't be approved in Canada. If he gets stopped in Canada they have to have the Canadian approval on them.

The Canadian addendum includes the following requirements:

* devices must be marked as being approved by Transport Canada or, for previously approved PFDs, the Canadian Coast Guard;
* all markings must be in both official languages;
* a specific Canadian warning label must be affixed to all devices; and
* there are some amendments to, and clarification of, the technical requirements.

Some will have the canadian labeling on units sold in the US, others won't.

dbruce85 is on a distinguished road
Inflatable life vests in Canada must be worn to be counted, (one life jacket per person rule).
So unless you have them on every time you leave the dock you still need regular life vests.
As long as you have a regular life vest for each person on the boat, you could still purchase and wear an inflatable when you wish, regardless of the US or CAN certs.

As far as I can tell from a terrible website - Canada's safe boating site - inflatable PFDs are ok by themselves. This was apparently changed in 2007. I could find nothing about having to wear them but it is suggested. On the Revere site they list approvals and they are all USCG and Canada is not mentioned anywhere I could find. So you could certainly own and wear one but they apparently are not approved for Canada. You would still have to have a Canadian approved lifejacket or PFD for each person on board.

Small Vessel Regulations (16.07)

Regulations Respecting Small Vessels

Quote:
(2) Subject to subsection (3), a personal flotation device may be of an inflatable type if
(a) it is worn in any open boat; or
(b) it is worn by a person in any boat that is not open while the person is on deck or in the cockpit, or it is readily available to the person when the person is below deck.
(3) A personal flotation device that is fitted with an automatic inflator shall not be used by a person on a sailboard.
