Canadian Power And Sail Squadrons

Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS-ECP) is a committed community of experienced boaters inspiring others to adopt a safe boating attitude through education and training. CPS-ECP connects boaters and continues to play a major role in Canadian boating culture.

We are a nationwide not for profit organization founded in 1938 with over 30,000 active members. Our instructors and programs help recreational boaters improve their boating safety knowledge as well as their vessel handling and navigation skills.   CPS-ECP works closely with the Canadian Safe Boating Council and other boating and industry associations. Some 10,000 boaters, each year, take safe-boating courses from CPS’ more than 3,000 experienced, volunteer training personnel across Canada.

While dedicated to training and promoting safety in all aspects of recreational boating, CPS has a strong social side that develops lifelong friendships and fun.
