TIBS Women's DayJoin keynote speaker and bestselling author Deb Cantrell and other special guests for a full day of interactive learning tailored to female boaters of all skill levels.

Women make up half of the boating market potential; yet, there are still common barriers that women experience when it comes to boat ownership and taking the helm. Canadian Boat Shows, which is proudly operated by a team of avid boaters who all happen to be women, understand these challenges first hand. Within the experience of managing two of Canada’s premier boat shows in Toronto and Vancouver, the show organizers have taken feedback from attendees and noted the demand for more boater education – specifically for women, by women.

“Every year we see more women involved in the decision-making process to get out on the water. They see the benefits of a boating lifestyle: spending time with family and friends, an enhanced quality of life, and a reduced level of stress. As a result, women are taking a lead role in operating boats, moving from a first mate to sitting in the driver’s seat,” says Cynthia Hare, Show Manager, Toronto International Boat Show.

In its commitment to boater education, the 2019 Toronto International Boat Show is excited to introduce Women’s Day on Sunday, January 20, offering a full day of boating seminars and guest speakers designed to educate and inspire female boaters of all skill levels and interests. More importantly, organizers want to create a friendly and supportive environment where women can feel comfortable asking questions and learning from each other.

Deb Cantrell, a bestselling author, amateur photographer, boater/cruiser, adventurer, and passionate life-long learner, will be the Keynote Speaker at Women’s Day. Her story and presentation titled, “Build Your Confidence – Maximize Your Fun!” is both relatable and inspiring, having embarked on an ambivalent love affair with boats 28 years ago when her husband Jim announced, out of the blue, that he’d like to “sell everything and sail away.”

CANADIAN HOUSE OF COMMONS TRADE COMMITTEE REPORT HIGHLIGHTS IMPACT OF RETALIATORY TARIFFS, URGES SWIFT RESOLUTION

 

NMMA CanadaA new Canadian House of Commons International Trade Committee report finds that retaliatory tariffs are taking a toll on Canada’s economy and calls on the government to work with the U.S. on resolving the issue. The study – titled “Section 232 of the United States Trade Expansion Act: Implications of Tariffs for Canada” – includes specific mentions of the recreational boating industry’s hardships from aluminum and steel tariffs and subsequent retaliation measures – a key win for the industry, which NMMA Canada and the Provincial Marine Trade Associations helped secure through written submissions and advocacy efforts. The Canadian government now has 60 days to respond to the committee’s report.
