The Canadian Safe Boating Council wants to acknowledge these heroes and showcase their commitment to safe boating. The CANADIAN SAFE BOATING AWARDS, usually called the CASBAs, honours the people, programs, and organizations that help to make boating in Canada safer and better for all of us.
Who are these heroes?
They could be a family or individual who saves a life; a boating safety advocate, a volunteer or teacher whose passion for boating engages people and influences boating safety; a professional with a legacy of work dedicated to boating safety, a member of the media or an industry partner who embraces boating safety. They are all heroes, and we want to share their stories.
