As we continue to work with our partners in the Recreational Boating Community, we would like to thank Boating Ontario with whom we share memberships in each other's organizations.

With the strong leadership and partnership with Boating Ontario last year and again this year, our Clubs and Marinas can launch boats and prepare for the season.

The following link is a detailed outline of ways to keep safe when you are preparing to go boating during the pandemic.

Webinar on Abandoned Boats

April 7, 2021
4:00 - 6:00 pm ET

Boating Ontario will be hosting a Webinar about Abandoned Boats. The objective of the webinar will be to educate consumers on solutions to abandoned boats in Ontario. The event will begin with a welcome from Boating Ontario’s CEO, Rick Layzell. Transport Canada will also be speaking about Bill C-64, also known as the  Wrecked, Abandoned or Hazardous Vessels Act. Disposal solutions will be the highlight towards the end of the event, with multiple industry experts offering solutions and answering your questions. CLICK HERE for the Zoom link.

About Abandoned Boats: Countless boats have been abandoned across the province of Ontario in backyards, storage yards, and farm fields. If left untouched, these abandoned vessels contaminate terrestrial & marine environments (if left in the water), impact the aesthetics of facilities & areas where they have been abandoned, and pose a safety risk to individuals that approach the vessel.
About Boating Ontario: Boating Ontario proudly represents over 500 member companies throughout the province of Ontario including private & municipal marina operators, boat dealers, brokers and suppliers in Ontario’s diverse recreational boating industry. Boating Ontario, through collaboration and partnerships provide all our members with critical and regulatory support for all aspects of their business through information, advice, direction as well as practical money saving programs. Ultimately our goal is to collaboratively increase the recreational boating market and promote the lifestyle enjoyed by those already involved in the industry. For more information, visit
