Boating Safety Contribution Program

The application period for the Recreational Boating Safety component is open. We are accepting applications until October 15, 2021.

There is no call for proposals under the Small Vessel Safety component at this time.

There is no call for proposals under the commercial fishing component at this time.

The Boating Safety Contribution Program (BSCP) helps organizations promote boating safety or conduct research on the most effective ways to change boating behaviours in Canada.

The BSCP supports organizations that work to raise public awareness about the boating safety for both recreational boating and commercial fishing; advance knowledge of boating safety issues, practices and behaviours in Canada; and support regulatory compliance.

We fund projects that:

  • increase the number of pleasure craft and small vessel operators following safe boating practices
  • improve access to national boating incident data that will improve stakeholder’s capacity to deliver evidence-based awareness and education initiatives
  • help reduce deaths, injuries and property damages due to boating accidents.

If you have any questions about this program, contact us by email or mail.
