Since 1995 the Canadian Safe Boating Council has been conducting the Transport Canada sponsored safe boating awareness week campaign.
It has been a mainstay of boating safety outreach to the millions of Canadians who recreate on our waters each year.
At the core of the 2017 campaign are the 5 key messages :
– wear a PDF or lifejacket
– don’t drink and boat
– take a boating course
– be prepared, both you and your vessel
– be wary of the dangers of cold water immersion
