If you are interested in all things boating, visit the Members Section of the CPS-ECP website (log in required) to explore member benefits and other valuable information, have a look at what our neighbours to the south in United States Power Squadrons District 6 are doing or take an Online PCOC Course. You can also find other information of interest through our links.  
Quinte District is part of Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons and covers an area bounded in the west by the city of Ajax, in the east by the city of Prince Edward County, in the north by the cities of Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes, and on the south side Lake Ontario.

The District Council meets four times a year at the Cobourg Yacht Club. Anyone is welcome to attend a District Council meeting.

We have seven Squadrons in Quinte District that offer boating courses and have a number of special events throughout the year.

To make inquiries about the District or its Squadrons you can contact District Council Officers or the Commanders of the Member Squadrons.
