Affiliation process

Our developmental support program was created to enable more people living with a disability to enjoy sailing. 
With over 25 years of experience in operating an adaptive sailing program in Pointe-Claire, the AQVA recognizes that starting up such a project requires significant resources, the lack of which sometimes becomes an obstacle to the creation and maintenance of such an initiative. 

By becoming affiliated with the AQVA, member organizations can benefit from multiple services such as administrative support, access to our Start-up Guide containing a lot of useful information, access to a specific sailing instructor training adapted and complementary to the FVQ instructor certification and finally, a possibility of equipment and boat loan. 

The annual membership fee is $150. 

Other benefits of membership: 

Participation in the associative life of the AQVA and the possibility to sit on the board (1 representative for all partner organizations).
Being part of a network of affiliated adapted sailing organizations
Visibility on the AQVA website
