Boating Education in Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge

Grand River Power and Sail Squadron is affiliated with Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons which is a nation-wide non-profit organization providing safe-boating courses.  Our courses range from Basic Boating to Off-Shore Navigation. We are also the providers of government required courses which include the mandatory Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card and the Restricted Operator’s Certificate (Marine).  Many of our courses are offered online.

Our course instructors are all volunteers and are experienced with both power and sail boating.  If you need to learn to use your new VHF radio, chart plotter, radar, anchor safely or read nautical charts, we can help.  

Our membership consists of over 300 boaters from Waterloo Region.  We hold social events throughout the year and simply enjoy getting together to talk about boating and share our adventures.

Checkout the courses that we offer, meet other boaters and increase your boating knowledge and skills.  You all certainly welcome to check out the advantages of becoming a Grand River Power and Sail Squadron member.

Our goal is to help make boating a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
