Boating safety tips in 33 languages
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
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
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.
