4pm – 6pm

Countless boats have been abandoned across the province of Ontario in backyards, storage yards, and farm fields. If left untouched, these abandoned vessels contaminate terrestrial & marine environments (if left in the water), impact the aesthetics of facilities & areas where they have been abandoned, and pose a safety risk to individuals that approach the vessel.

On April 7th, 2021 from 4pm – 6pm, Boating Ontario will be hosting a Webinar about Abandoned Boats. The objective of the webinar will be to educate consumers on solutions to abandoned boats in Ontario. The event will begin with a welcome from Boating Ontario’s CEO, Rick Layzell. Transport Canada will also be speaking about Bill C-64, also known as the Wrecked, Abandoned or Hazardous Vessels Act. Disposal solutions will be the highlight towards the end of the event, with multiple industry experts offering solutions and answering your questions.
