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.
