Boating Safety is a Priority!

It takes special people to help us stay safe so we can enjoy our time out on the water with fewer worries. This includes people who volunteer their time on organizations such as the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue organization, or even somebody who notices someone in trouble and lends a helping hand. The Canadian Boating Safety Council holds an annual event in January known as the Canadian Safe Boating Awards (CASBAs). These awards recognize the people, programs, organizations and marinas that help to make boating in Canada safer and better for all of us, and to keep the environment clean. This is your opportunity as a boater to nominate someone or an organization you know that has made an exceptional contribution to boating safety.
