The Ottawa Power and Sail Squadron is one of approximately 116 Squadrons across Canada. We have been promoting a safe boating experience for powerboat and sailboat enthusiasts through classroom education and camaraderie for 70 years. If you need boating knowledge then look no further, we have the right course for you. Check out our Courses section and enroll in the next course.

The benefits of belonging to CPS-ECP and the Ottawa Squadron extend even further than the benefits from our corporate sponsors which more than cover the cost of your annual membership. Please take the time to come out and enjoy friendship on and off the water and make your boating experience both safe and enjoyable. We are always looking for new people, with skills and desire to be part of our Squadron Executive.

Come aboard to share your knowledge and enthusiasm with new students or maybe upgrade your own knowledge by enrolling in one of our many courses. We can all practice safe boating during the Summer months and help teach in the Fall, Winter and Spring. After all, it is a long winter. Dream about boating and help us promote safe boating for the next year.

Hope to see you on the water or at one of our many functions. Till we meet, be safe out there!
