The Canadian Safe Boating Council is in the business of promoting safe and responsible boating throughout Canada. As an alliance of members committed to preventing boating injuries and drowning, the Canadian Safe Boating Council works to achieve its mission through a few major events.
Each January, stakeholders in recreational boating safety assemble to honour the people, programs, organizations and marinas that help to make boating in Canada safer and better for all of us, and to keep the environment clean.
Those new to this gala event call them the Canadian Safe Boating Awards. But the many that each year make this evening an essential outing on their post-Christmas calendars, simply refer to them as the CASBAS.
Of special significance to award recipients is that, with the exception of the Canadian Safe Boating Council’s Special Recognition Award, their nomination came from people like you; those in the industry, boating safety organizations and the general public.
