Ontario is home to 3 out of 5 of our Great Lakes! According to the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project there has been 1155 Great Lakes drownings since 2010!
Drowning is the leading cause of preventable death. Approximately 500 Canadians die each year in water-related incidents.
The main objective of the Region 7 Water Safety Campaign is to express our commitment to working with the region to promote safe boating practices and water safety within our communities and beyond!
Water safety is a critical issue that requires constant awareness and education. Approximately 500 Canadians die each year in water-related incidents; most of these deaths are preventable through public education and life jacket awareness. As an act of community service iSUP Saugeen is donating $1000.00 CAD + hst towards launching the Region 7 water safety campaign that is to air annually between May - September. The water safety campaign is a community fund that provides workshops and swim lessons to community members in need and also funds water safety public service announcements that are broadcasted on the radio as a variety of weather tags.
The 2023 Region 7 water safety campaign is being broadcasted using BlackBurn Media Company’s 101.7 The One; reaching multiple communities throughout Mid-Western Ontario including Bruce, Grey, Huron, Perth, and Wellington counties.
Sponsorship directly contributes to saving lives! Your generous contribution will go towards funding water safety public service announcements, site specific swimming lessons and water safety education for local charities like Big Brothers Big Sisters Grey Bruce, Community Living, Bluewater Education Foundation, M’Wikwedong Indigenous Friendship Centre, and other community organizations who work to provide support and resources to people in need.
