Unfortunately Canada sells its chart through a third party, what type of digital device are you wanting them to run on? You may however find 1000 Islands on the the US charts from NOAA.

Canadian Charts

Hi Mike:

American sources seem to treat Canadian waters like they don't exist. I'm trying to view the charts on open source software on a tablet.

Thanks, Bob

Hi Bob
What software and tablet type, i find it funny that they are free for download in the US and not in Canada. I guess it is because of the deal the struck with NDI many years ago.

There is no such thing as a free Canadian chart.

I'm running OpenCPN software on a Windows 8 tablet.
