Boating BC Association is a network of qualified professionals who share their knowledge, insight and assistance to every kind of boater and marine business, from a first-timer to a seasoned tour operator. If you have questions about boating in BC, we are your go-to resource! And if you work in the marine industry, we offer counsel on business and governance issues, as well as representing and advocating on behalf of the boating industry to all levels of government. We offer unbiased information from experts who live and work boating every day.
We own and operate the Vancouver International Boat Show (#VanBoatShow), the second largest boat show in Canada. We love all things boating and actively promote it as a recreational activity of choice in BC, and we support our community through our Grants & Sponsorship and Glenn Spartz Scholarship programs.
If you’re a boater, we hope you’ll join our community and stay connected. If you work in recreational boating, we invite your business to become a member and add your voice to our industry.
