Transport Canada suggests that before leaving home port, boaters should prepare a sailing plan, and leave a copy with a responsible person on shore (a relative, wharfinger, union official, fish plant manager, local police, or fisheries officer). That person can then contact the Rescue Co-ordination Centre or Marine Rescue Sub-Centre if your vessel becomes overdue. The sailing plan will help guide search and rescue teams in the event of an emergency. With you can stay compliant with Transport Canada and boat safer. Register today for free!

Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional death for Canadians under 60.
