PORT CREDIT SPRING BOAT SHOW POSTPONED FOR 2017, RESCHEDULED FOR 2018

The Port Credit Spring Boat Show has been postponed for 2017, with plans to return in 2018. The show, set to celebrate its fourth year from June 2-4, was to be held at The Credit Village Marina in Port Credit, ON.

Show managers, Canadian Outdoor Sport Shows said that there were a number of logistical reasons for the shows re-scheduling, including the Canada’s 150th celebrations.

Heralded as the official kick-off to the boating season, the Port Credit Spring Boat Show showcased a wide assortment of new and used power and sailboats up to 60 feet; boating related products, accessories & services and live entertainment.

Many marine related services from around Ontario, who supported the show, while disappointed regarding the postponement, have also shared that they are somewhat relieved. Boat sales have been swift this fall and spring, resulting in an unexpected lower spring inventory.

‘It was a great show for us,’ stated Mike Burns, president of North South Yacht Sales. ‘It didn’t hurt that it was in our backyard, but it was great to see so many of the boat dealers and services from surrounding areas participate and do so well. The more participants – the more successful the show’.

Canadian Outdoor Sport Shows will take the spring and summer to recalibrate and return to negotiations with the City of Mississauga at a later date to start preparations for next year’s show.

The next show is slated to take place June 1 – 3, 2018. For those interested in exhibiting, please contact Canadian Outdoor Sport Shows to book space.

Conservation Gala Receives Record Support

May 24, 2017 – Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVCF) hosted its 12th Annual Conservation Gala on Thursday, May 4. The final count shows a record level of support from the local community. Over 375 guests raised $237,000 in the spirit of the next 150 years of conservation in the Credit River watershed.

Funds raised support CVCF’s five-year Protect, Connect and Sustain Campaign. The campaign goal is to raise $5 million for Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) by 2020 to support three key projects: Conservation Youth Corps, land securement and the Credit Valley Trail.

“We are grateful for the tremendous support the gala received from our friends and partners in the community,” said Terri LeRoux, Executive Director, CVCF. “Nature is essential to healthy communities and individual well-being, so we want to do everything we can to protect it.”

“Through our five-year campaign, we continue to raise funds that support the important environmental work CVC does to protect, connect and sustain us,” continued LeRoux. “Funds will be invested in securing new conservation lands, inspiring youth to be future environmental champions and building the Credit Valley Trail to connect the Lake Ontario waterfront to the headwaters of the Credit River in Orangeville.”

Since 2006, the Conservation Gala has raised over $1.6 million in support of CVC projects and initiatives that enhance the local environment for present and future generations. Every year the gala is attended by corporate leaders, individual philanthropists, community stakeholders and municipal representatives.

This year’s event, held at Lionhead Golf Club and Conference Centre in Brampton, included a special welcome address by Carolyn King, the former chief of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, a Birds of Prey display where participants could meet native wildlife, and a substantial silent and live auction featuring over 125 items and experiences.

The Conservation Gala was a success due to the generous support of corporate sponsors, including:

Dinner sponsor: Port Credit West Village Partners (Diamond Corp, Dream, FRAM + Slokker, and Kilmer Van Nostrand Co. Limited)

Cocktail reception sponsor: DG Group, Condrain, GEMS, and Aquatech Dewatering

Valet and photography sponsor: Argo Land Development and Urbantech Consulting
