Safe Boating Awareness Week

Attention: Media Editor, Sports Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 4, 2005) - Safe Boating Awareness Week will take place across Canada from May 21st to May 27th, 2005. The purpose of this initiative is to promote a wide range of safe boating practices to the estimated 7 million recreational boaters in Canada.

Information about this initiative will follow on PR Direct, a division of The Canadian Press ( and via e-mail to you over the next week-and-a-half. The media's involvement and support is essential to getting the "Safe Boating" message out to the recreational boating public. To assist you with preparing your editorials, news coverage and special programming, the Canadian Safe Boating Council Web site contains valuable information and content for print, radio and television media.

This initiative is promoted by the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC), a non-profit organization and its members and partners from all areas of the marine community including manufacturers, boating education organizations, water safety and marine law enforcement sectors. The goal is to ensure that the millions of Canadians who head out on the waters in canoes and kayaks, sailboards and sailboats, fishing boats, personal watercraft, power boats and cruisers are equipped with the knowledge for a safe day on the water.

Please help get the Safe Boating Awareness Week message out through print, television and radio to the Canadian public this year.
