Safety Equipment Education and Flare Disposal Days

CPS-ECP is excited to announce their partnership with Transport Canada and CIL Dealers to undertake a project on education and awareness of safety equipment, the care and maintenance of that equipment and how to safely and effectively use and dispose of flares.
Have Your Flares Expired?
If your flares have a manufacture date of 2013 or earlier they have or will expire this year. You can't light them, throw them in the water or in your household garbage to dispose of them.
Disposing of expired flares has been an ongoing dilemma for boaters across the country. To help boaters dispose of expired flares in a safe and environmentally responsible manner CPS-ECP and selected CIL Dealers are hosting Safety Equipment Education and Flare Disposal Days. On these days, you will be offered the opportunity to learn about required safety equipment and you can bring your outdated flares to be properly disposed of, free of charge.
The following list of locations will host safety equipment days and accept expired flares on the dates noted below.

In accordance with Transport Canada requirements, flares are approved for four years from the date of manufacture. Typically, this means that you need to replace your flares every third or fourth boating season. If they have expired or will expire during this boating season, you must replace them... it's the law!
