Sail Canada Affiliate Organizations, along with yacht and sailing clubs, windsurfing & foil clubs, sailing schools and camps are the foundation of the Sail Canada membership program. The Affiliate Organization membership is an appropriate membership category for organizations not identified as Canadian clubs or schools, but hold interest in the sport of sailing and would like to promote their valid affiliation with the governing body for sailing in Canada and access the services and benefits of the national membership. 

Affiliate organizations become members of Sail Canada through application to Sail Canada. The annual membership fee is paid to Sail Canada. The annual membership fee is a flat rate, $350 per year. For further information or to become a member affiliate organization please contact us at

Note: In order to offer Sail Canada programs, courses must be taught by current Sail Canada instructors who are certified at the appropriate level.
