Free Courtesy Check

Again this summer, we will be offering the “Boating Public” a free Recreational Vessel Courtesy Check of their vessel to ensure that they are properly equipped and that they know what is expected of them by Transport Canada.

What is a RVCC? It is an inform survey of safety equipment, and it’s condition, on your boat. We let you know if you are complete or incomplete. If you are complete you will receive an Official Sticker from Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons for your boat. The Marine Units will see you are actively interested in being safe on the water. This is all done in a friendly manner and you can rest assured that we will not be going into personal property or below decks without permission. We will basically ask you for what we need. Really it is a valuable service for you to use to be sure you are safe and legal.

The Law Enforcers will be stepping up Marine Checks in an effort to improve water safety and awareness. We have known this for a while now. The excuse of “ I didn’t know” will not due anymore.

A Recreational Vessel Courtesy Check. done in advance and on your time schedule
can prevent unnecessary fines.

Prepare for your boating season by getting a FREE Courtesy Check from Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons (CPS) and get your safety inspection sticker.
CPS, working in partnership with Transport Canada’s Office of Boating Safety, will help ensure that you and your family have an enjoyable and safe summer on the water.

Get a Courtesy Check from a CPS Boating Safety Specialist at your marina or launch ramp and verify that you have all the required safety equipment on board.
