I couldn't find that. Like I said, it's a terrible web site. But I doubt that one purchased in the US will carry Canadian approval tags.
So as long as you have an approved lifejacket for each person on board you may wear the inflatable PFD or not as you wish, whether it is approved or not.

Paul is racing. He may not want the hassle of two pfd's.

Well, I bit the bullet and got a Mustang 3153. Good price (for Canada), good bit of kit. Figured there wasn't any point trying to go cheap on such an important item.

Nah, don't plan on going anywhere a harness is needed. Not for a while anyway, and it didn't seem worth lugging the extra weight. I can always get a separate harness at a later date.

Just thinking about Southern Straits, Swiftsure, Van Isle - great races,; all require harnesses. Anyways - enjoy the Martin. One of these days I would like to catch a ride on one.

Well, if I race with anyone rich enough to have a boat worth entering into them, they can lend me a harness
