Our New Format

How do you like the new format for News Week?

There is a lot of editorial and information here for you and research data as well. We welcome your input and comments.

We hope you have started making your plans to get involved with the 2017 North American Safe Boating Awareness Week Campaign. Since 1995, this campaign has been the mainstay of boating safety outreach to the over 16 million people who recreate on Canadian waters each season. The 2017 campaign will be no exception as organizations like the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP) strive to engrain safe and responsible boating practices as second nature on the water.

At the core of the 2017 campaign are these 5 key messages:
 • Wear a PFD or Lifejacket
 • Don't Drink & Boat
 • Take a Boating Course
 • Be Prepared, Both You and Your Vessel
 • Be Wary of the Dangers of Cold Water Immersion

To get this message out and to gain a benefit for your business, you can take advantage of materials that are available on the CSBC website. There is a variety of readily usable press releases as well as downloadable print, radio and television PSAs to interest your listeners, viewers and readers. For interview purposes, the CSBC may even be able to provide access to local volunteers. Simply contact Susanne Simic ( pr@csbc.ca) to arrange.
