Join us for the CSBC Symposium in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories from September 22-24, 2016
We have raised the bar yet again!  Don't miss out - join us for the best CSBC Symposium yet! The event will be held at The Explorer hotel in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. You will have the opportunity to explore and discuss boating safety issues facing those who live in northern Canada. Join fellow boating safety enthusiasts for presentations and discussions on a wide range of topics, including:
  • How SAR Led to a Life-saving Strategy
  • Updates on the CSBC Safe Boating Campaign
  • Establishment of a Drowning Prevention Action Plan 
  • Successes and Challenges for Safe Boating in the North 
  • And much more!
Our closing keynote speaker is the one and only 'Dr. Popsicle' - Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht of the University of Manitoba. Dr. Giesbrecht has conducted hundreds of cold water immersion studies that have provided life-saving information about physiology and pre-hospital care for human hypothermia. He has also conducted over 100 vehicle submersions with people in them, to study survival and exit strategies in sinking vehicles. He has helped create instructional educational programs, such as Beyond Cold Water Boot Camp and written protocols used by Emergency Response Operators around the world.

This year, we are excited to offer you the opportunity to enjoy a sightseeing boat tour of Great Slave Lake on September 23.  
We're looking forward to welcoming you in Spectacular Northwest Territories.
