We Need Your Help!

Our Station relies on your donations to keep our equipment new and our members safe and well trained.

The Mill Bay Marine Rescue Society (MBMRS) is responsible for raising the funds necessary to operate RCM-SAR Station 34. MBMRS is a registered charitable organization in Canada, and all donations are tax-deductible. There are no administration fees and no hidden costs when you donate. With no paid employees, every dollar raised by MBMRS goes towards purchasing and maintaining our search and rescue equipment. All equipment, including our boats, is purchased through funds raised by donation.

Outboard Engine replacement
Our outboard engines are due for replacement at 1500/2000 hours, currently we are at 1200 hours. The outboard engines replacement is expected to cost $65,000 and is scheduled to occur in the Spring of 2019.
Our members have been fundraising, relying on donations and applying for various grants to raise funds needed to support the engine replacement. Please support us to achieve our goal .
