Welcome to PMD

Welcome to Pacific Mainland District -- we are made up of seventeen individual non-profit Canadian Power & Sail groups of boaters called squadrons, located along the west coast, and in the interior, of British Columbia. Each squadron has it's own unique membership, but common to all squadrons is boating education. Classes offered range from basic boating certification (Pleasure Craft Operator Cards, PCOC) through to advanced navigation courses. We also offer courses in martime radio (VHF Radio Operators Certificate), weather and boat maintenance.

Courses are offered in two semesters: Sept - Dec and Jan - April

Our PCOC online course is live on our CPS Website at BoatingCourses.ca.
