Flare Disposal

Received today by email from Canadian Power Squadron.

CPS have heard from Transport Canada’s Boating Safety Contribution Program that our 2023 – 2025 proposal for continued funding of the Safety and Flare Disposal Program has not been approved.

However, we have received a small contribution from Transport Canada that will allow us to offer 10 events in 2023. CIL Orion and CPS-ECP remain committed to the program but without the considerable funding required we have had to cancel most of the events for 2023 that we were working on.

Ten events have been chosen for 2023 based on their locations and past collections.

Remaining collection events are:

June 10, 2023                     Marine Outfitters/Collins Bay Marina      Kingston

June 10,2023                      Georgian Sjores Marina                                Owen Sound

June 13-15                          Hully Gully Marine                                           London

June 17                                 Bayfield Marine services                               Bayfield

June 24                                 Port Whitby Marine Supplies                      Whitby

June 24                                 Dan’s Nautical Shop                                        Windsor

July 1                                     Paris Marine                                                       Peterborough

Sept 30                                 Sudbury Hearth and Home                          Sudbury

CPS will re-apply for funding for the 2024-2026 season, but no guarantees.

Sorry there is not better news.
