it): Name of constructor: (example: POWERED PARAGLIDING NEW BRUNSWICK)

taking care of your file. You must also point out to them if
you wish your file to remain in Quebec or be transferred back

in Quebec. If for some reason they need more info it will be
easier for me to deal with them if your file is in Montreal

Registering powered paraglider in Toronto by John Weitner
I have just completed the registration of my paramotor with the
Toronto office of T.C.
Initially I contacted the office in Quebec mentioned below but
was told to deal with my local office in Toronto.
I spoke with Jim P. at 416-952-0219 as to what was needed. They
1-completed form 26-0521 as outlined by Christiane above
2-copy of a bill of sale - the purpose of this not for the
GST/PST but to show that legal title has passed.
3-I also included my receipt which showed proof of taxes paid.
4-A photocopy of your 3" x 4" steel nameplate. It
includes the manufacturer, model and S/N. The year of make is not
I have access to a nameplate stamping machine so can help anyone
5- Call back and ask for the finance department - pay the $110 by
Visa and get your receipt # which you include on your fax to Jim.
I did this on Monday and Jim phoned me back on Tuesday with my
registration number C-I CHZ. There's no need to include the reg'n
number on your wing. I will make up a suitable sized reg/n plate to
attach in the bottom of the seat. I guess they trust that you will
do this part.
The process was quick and hassle free
