Add Your Support to the Decibel Coalition

The Decibel Coalition is a Safe Quiet Lakes (SQL) initiative aimed at introducing Canadian legislation to curb excessive boat noise similar to legislation already in place in the US and Europe. The Coalition wants to expand the Canada Small Vessel Regulations (SOR/2010-91) to include decibel limits on engine noise. The muffler issue will be brought forward at the Canadian Marine Advisory Council (CMAC) meetings this November with Transport Canada. The two channels available to add your support are:
  1. Write to the local MP at your Bay property and copy the Transport Minister and the Transport Committee.
  1. Sign the Decibel Coalition’s petition to get decibel limits in place for boat motor noise.

Information about signing the petition form and a sample letter can be found on the GBA website-
