The Shediac Power and Sail Squadron has been serving the Greater Moncton area for over 40 years. The squadron was incorporated on May 25, 1964 under the command of Fred Fraser, with 23 members.

From that time until now the squadron, which is part of the national organization of the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons ( CPS ), has dedicated itself to promoting safe boating through education. We do this by providing courses in all aspects of receational boating.

On October 19, 1995 the Squadron received approval from CPS for our new pennant, which was the winning entry by Roy Meloche from a contest among squadron members. This is the logo displayed in the upper left corner of the page.

The Shediac Squadron is, as of May 07, 2014 under the command of John Sims, JN with 187 members.
