It becomes more clear each year that women are a major part of the fishing and boating lifestyle. And, like far too many industries, women are underrepresented in the boating business. This is something we’d like to see change.

So far, so good. We’re seeing more and more female fishing influencers on social media, more female professionals in the boating industry, and this year the Toronto International Boat Show prominently featured Women’s Day: A full line up of seminars, guest speakers, and interactive sessions designed to educate women in a fun and supportive way.

Womens Day

Here are a few key topics they covered:

  • Build Your Confidence - Maximize Your Fun!
  • All Systems Go! Boat Maintenance and Repair for Women!
  • Let's Go Cruising! With Your Family, Your Partner, or Alone
  • Take Control: Docking Stress-free (in water)
  • Get to Know Your D.D. (Dependable Dinghy) (in water & on the dock)
  • The Back-Up Plan: Trailering With Ease (hands on)
  • Girl Power: Diesel Engine Basics
  • Provisioning, Stowage and Much More!
  • Lunch & Learn Panel Discussion
  • Safe and Sound Basic Safety Everyone Should Know
  • The “Happy” Hooker: Tips and Techniques on Successful Anchoring
  • Dock Talk: Q&A Like Never Before!
  • Everything You Want To Know To Feel Safe
  • Buoys Rule: Navigation on the Water
  • Knotted Sistas
  • Girl Power: Gasoline Engine Basics


We’re also seeing plenty of women crushing fishing tournaments, tons of fishing and boating websites FWBY (for women by women), and an abundance of other women-centric events across Canada including;

  • Organized Ice Fishing Weekends
  • Fishing and Boat Shows
  • Angler and Hunter Getaways
  • Mother/Daughter Fishing Trips

This is all great news.
