Port Credit, Ontario / September 18th - 20th, 2019

With the highly successful 2018 CSBC symposium in Victoria just behind us, it is already time to start planning for the next Symposium which will be held on the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto, Ontario. The dates are September 18-20 and the host hotel is right on the waterfront … the magnificent Waterside Inn. This is a unique boutique hotel in the charming village of Port Credit by the lake and is just a short train ride to Toronto. This is an incredibly in-demand hotel in Port Credit and the rooms held in the CSBC block @ $ 184.00 per night might not last long. So make plans to attend now and book your stay early. And while you are there, take advantage of your time to explore Toronto.

Keep your eye on this site for further updates about the symposium but for now, plan to attend and book your hotel today.

5 Key Steps to Safer Boating

Wear Your Lifejacket

Legally you must carry one on board, appropriately sized for each passenger. But don’t just carry it, WEAR IT.

Boat Sober

Boating under the influence of alcohol, recreational drugs or prescription narcotics, is illegal, irresponsible and potentially deadly. Leave any such substances until you return to the dock.

Take a Boating Course

The law now requires that anyone driving a motorized boat must have a pleasure-craft operator card. It’s for your own safety and that of your passengers. Don’t get caught without one. Take a course and get your license!
