Waiting for Spring to get sprung

As spring seems to be at an end in western Canada, it is taking its sweet time getting launched in the East. In Ontario, whether you are patiently or otherwise waiting for the winter to give it up, there are a couple of opportunities this spring for you as a professional in the marine industry to get involved with your association and your region in order to collaborate on growing the boating lifestyle and your local tourism industry. Learn how to get involved below. We are always interested to hear what your boating association is up to. Please get in touch with us when you have an event coming up and we'll share the info with our readers. Talk to us on Twitter anytime @BoatIndCan. Happy reading!
