If I was to move to Canada could I work for a Canadian tugboat company with my Master 1600 ton U.S.C.G. license?

Simple answer. NO. The Canadians have just as much, no make that MORE protection for their own mariners as US does for ours. You first have to become a legal resident or maybe a citizen and then go through their Licensing system. You should be able to get credit towards a Canadian License.
I live in canada there licening needs way less sea time and they will transfer your uscg license over to there equivalent but will take 4-6 months
Assuming a 1 to 1 exchange rate…does anyone know how the pay on Canadian Flag tugs compares with US Flag vessels?
