The New CPS-ECP Membership Card

Nov 9, 2023

At the National Annual General Meeting, CPS-ECP introduced the new Digital Membership Card coming the middle of November 2023.  This will allow the member the flexibility to carry their CPS-ECP Membership card in a digital format on their electronic device, or in a printed version.  This will also allow the member to easily forward a digital copy to a benefits supplier to validate their current membership.

All members, both Regular and Life members, will receive a new current digital card each year automatically when they renew their membership.  The new digital membership card will now have greater value, because it will carry the member’s current membership expiry date.  This will replace the plastic card with no expiry date. The plastic card allowed any person to claim CPS-ECP membership benefits without maintaining a current CPS-ECP membership.  Those members with no internet access will be able to receive a printed version.  Scroll through this PowerPoint presentation to follow the history of the CPS-ECP membership card.

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
