Shuswap Lifeboat Society Directors Elected for 2021/2022

The Shuswap Lifeboat Society AGM occurred on November 15, 2021.

Often wonder how the Society interfaces with Station 106 Shuswap?

Everything operational is the responsibility of Station 106 Shuswap.

Crew – recruitment, new crew training to Canadian Coast Guard criteria. Accepted crew receive additional training including boat handling in close quarters, seamanship, radar, gps navigation, chartwork, first aid, cold water survival, and SAR skills. Vessels – maintenance, upkeep, cleanliness, disinfection, and restocking. Missions – scheduling crew, and safely performing the SAR Taskings.

The Shuswap Lifeboat Society (SLS) is the Business Entity of Station 106, by supporting the Operations with a primary purpose of ownership of the assets, and financial support.

Activities include fundraising, donor management and recognition, asset management, receiving and disbursement of funds, including payment of expenses.

The Society is able to issue charitable tax receipts for donations.

Society members must be members of Station 106.

To serve on the SLS Board, a person does not need to be an active crew member. Any person who has an interest in the activities of RCMSAR Station 106 Shuswap, either as active crew, or support member dockside, or with the Society are always most welcome to join us.
