Boating Ontario is very proud to have Transport Canada’s Office of Boating Safety jump on board and include the ‘Safe Boating Guide’ in the new Boating Ontario directory app which is free for Apple & Android devices.

With so many new boaters on Ontario’s waterways, now is the perfect time for the association and we are grateful to have this important tool as part of our free app. A huge thank you to our partner Kerrwil Publications who did a great job putting this together” said Rick Layzell, CEO of Boating Ontario.
