2004 Safe Boating Awareness Week

Safe Boating Awareness Week took place across Canada from May 22nd to May 28th, 2004. The purpose of this initiative is to promote a wide range of safe boating practices to the estimated 7 million recreational boaters in Canada.

This initiative is promoted by the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC), a non-profit organization and its members and partners from all areas of the marine community including manufacturers, boating education organizations, water safety and marine law enforcement sectors. The goal is to ensure that the millions of Canadians who head out on the waters in canoes and kayaks, sailboards and sailboats, fishing boats, personal watercraft, power boats and cruisers are equipped with the knowledge for a safe day on the water.

The media´s involvement and support is essential to getting the “Safe Boating” message out to the recreational boating public. To assist journalists with preparing editorials, news coverage and special programming, the CSBC Web site contains valuable information and content for both print and television media.

For additional information or to order copies of the video material for broadcast please visit the CSBC Web Site or contact:
