The North Shore Squadron is a unit of Pacific Mainland District of Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons We are an organization composed of boating enthusiasts aiming to increase boating safety and enjoyment by providing education regarding seamanship and navigation, for both power-boaters and sail-boaters alike.

The North Shore Power & Sail Squadron is CPS’s newest Squadron; we are an amalgamation of the Capilano, Norvan, and Seymour Squadrons.

We are a charitable, membership based organization and all teaching and all administration is undertaken on a volunteer basis.

Membership is not restricted to boat owners, nor owners of large yachts. In a nutshell, we are a dedicated group interested in increasing safety and pleasure on the waterways, through education.

Great things are on their way!
