In an effort to reach out to Canadians whose first language is not English, the Lifesaving Society and Ontario Power Generation (OPG) teamed up to produce a tip sheet of ten boating safety tips available in 33 languages. Printer friendly PDF versions are listed below.

This tip sheet addresses the ethnic media’s desire for multilingual safety tips and is available for broadcast media to use in their news segments. We encourage all print media, community groups and boating safety organizations to distribute the tip sheet at community events, use it in their newsletters and share it with their members.

Materials translated into the First Nations languages are available to the First Nations community and groups who promote boating safety including the Canadian Rangers.

OPG generously donated the funds to translate the tips and DRAFTFCB donated the design and production costs. These tip sheets are also available at www.smartboater.ca and www.opg.com.
