Welcome!                         Bookmark this website
Welcome to the website of Lake St. Louis Squadron. We are a division of Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons (CPS), which is a national, not-for-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to teaching safe and responsible boating. Our focus is on good seamanship and in-depth navigational skills.

CPS has existed for over 70 years and has approximately 30,000 members, coast-to-coast. Please click onto our web page tab “About LSLS” for additional background.

Our courses are a lot of fun while being very useful for serious boaters, like the VHF marine radio course that leads to Restricted Operator’s Certificate (Marine) and required by law when operating a VHF radio. Weather, Boat Maintenance and Sailing are other courses that make a big difference to those who enjoy the many aspects of boating and wish to do so as safely as possible.

We also offer two courses leading to the Pleasure Craft Operator Card (PCOC). Boating Basics & Boating Essentials with PCOC.  These two courses include the exam required for the PCOC that is required by law for operators of motorized pleasure craft.


The approved Handbook and Seminar to prepare you for the pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC) exam.

Crossing the border? CPS is a provider of safe boating courses approved by both Transport Canada and the U.S. National Association of State Boating Law Administrators.

More advanced courses such as Seamanship, Advanced Piloting, and Junior Navigator and Navigator are exciting programs that build on the knowledge gained in Boating Essentials and lead to a very thorough understanding of how to plan and voyage safely in long-distance cruising in the St. Lawrence River, the Great Lakes, offshore, and even ocean crossings.

Looking Ahead
The St. Lawrence District Squadrons (Montreal, Lake St Louis, West Island, and Hudson) are promoting a program to offer more courses and seminars using a joint format where necessary to have reasonable class size.

Also we hold joint social events to keep members and friends involved and interested in expanding our concern for boating safety. Additional events will be scheduled in the new year. Watch our web site for further details.

Finally, our association with the Royal St-Lawrence Yacht Club dates back several decades and will remain in place as our home club. This magnificent facility is where we hold all our classes, meetings, graduation ceremonies and other events. The Bridge and I invite you to participate fully in our activities. Furthermore, we hope that you will invite your friends as well as any potential boaters. We are looking forward to attracting new members to the Squadron as well as enrol new students to our fall and winter courses.

Best regards,

Cdr. Robert Gales
