106 life jackets were collected in support of the Operation Life Jacket (OLI) initiative.

Notice- Life Jackets Collected for Northern Canadian Communities

In a partnership between the Thornbury Harbour and the Thornbury Yacht Club, 106 life jackets were collected in support of the Operation Life Jacket (OLI) initiative.

The OLI program was developed by the Canadian Ranger Foundation and the Canadian Safe Boating Council to improve boating safety in First Nation communities in Northern Canada. In Northern Canada, the supply and availability of life jackets are limited and can cost in excess of $100 each.

To support the initiative, a public call for life jacket donations was led by representatives from the Thornbury Yacht Club. Many different varieties of life jackets were donated, including brand-new lifejackets with the tags still attached. In addition, dog and racing inflatable life jackets were also donated from the community.

The Town and the Thornbury Yacht Club would like to extend a special thank you to Gyles Sails & Marine for their support and promotion of this initiative.

Thank you to everyone who donated life jackets to the Operation Life Jacket project and showing your strong community support.
