There are 2 levels of membership: Regular and Associate.
Regular Members
Holders of a Pleasure Craft Opeator Card who have also graduated from the CPS Boating Essentials Course can become Regular Members. Regular Members can fly the CPS flag. They also have better Boat Insurance rebates with the CPS Boat Insurance program.

Both types of membership have access to the same Corporate Membership Benefits.
We also recognize certain course equivalences from the Sail Canada (Canadian Yachting Association), Association Maritime du Québec, the United States Power Squadrons, Transport Canada Certified Professional Mariners, Navigators, etc. You must present copies of your course completion certificates to be considered for membership at CPS.
