Own Your Own Shoal Marker

TIA will designate the “ROCK” marker as yours and will officially recognize it on our website and in our newsletter.

Own your own Shoal Marker Program

With water level fluctuations our shoal Markers are beginning to be worn out, lost or disappearing. Therefore TIA continues to need more markers, this is an expensive and necessary endeavour to save lives and to promote river safety.

To help support shoal marking, TIA offers its ” Your Own Shoal Marker” Program.

For a fully tax deductible $500 donation, TIA will designate the “Rock” marker that you indicate as your personal shoal. You will receive a TIA t-shirt and a Canadian or US income tax receipt.
