Welcome to the Vancouver Island North District (VIND) of Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS). CPS is a federal Not For Profit corporation and charity and is divided into seventeen Districts which cover the country from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island. Each District is comprised of a number of Squadrons who strive to carry out our mission in their own local area. The ten VIND squadrons are all based in towns and cities on Vancouver Island, north of the Malahat. Our colleagues in Squadrons in Vancouver Island South District (VISD) are based in and around Victoria and the Southern Gulf Islands. Within our web site you will find information about where our squadrons are and the courses, activities and fellowship that they offer. We also include their contact information and web links so that should you wish to find out more you may do so. Our Courses vary from Basic Boating/ PCOC (both classroom and on-line) Boating Essentials, Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) (VHF) and Advanced courses. In addition our Squadrons offer courses in boat and engine maintenance, weather, electronic navigation courses and radar and many more. I encourage you to join us and increase your boating knowledge or to offer your knowledge and experience to us.test
