(Coastal Nations – Pacific)

The Coastal Nations Coast Guard Auxiliary (Western) Inc. (CN-CGA) was incorporated in mid-2018 under the sponsorship of the Federal Government, for the purpose of providing organized voluntary maritime Search & Rescue (SAR) in coastal areas of British Columbia (BC). The CN-CGA in addition to SAR, promotes water safety and conducts coastal safety patrols in an Auxiliary support role to the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG).

We are Canada’s first Indigenous led Coast Guard Auxiliary (CGA) with a purpose to protect both mariners and citizens through the forging of strong and lasting partnerships between First Nations (FN) and the (CCG).
