Canadian Safe Boating Awards




The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) is committed to recognizing individuals and groups who strive to make Canada’s waterways a safer place for everyone to enjoy, live, work and play.  The Canadian Safe Boating Awards, “CASBA’s”, are presented annually with the dinner gala considered a flagship event of the council.

I would like to encourage you to think about those who are making a positive impact on your local waters and how national recognition may provide an opportunity to showcase your community’s commitment to safe boating.  By sharing our successes we encourage others as well as provide the recognition so many deserve.

Who are these heroes?  A family or individual faced with a life or death situation who aids another and saves a life; a boating safety advocate, volunteer or teacher whose passion for paddling, sailing or powerboating can’t help but influence others to be engaged;  professionals, media members and industry partners who embrace the need to promote the benefits of boating safety while challenging themselves to consider and share information on the impact on our natural environments…they are all heroes and we are looking for their stories.

It will only take a few minutes to nominate one of these special people, a group or organization whose efforts in the field of boating safety or environmental stewardship deserve national recognition.   You may consider nominating yourself, your own group or organization.  Award categories include the following:

STEARNS  – Rescue of the Year
