The purpose of recreation is not to kill time but to stimulate activity – not to keep people occupied but to keep them refreshed – not to offer an escape from life but to expand its possibilities.
CharterAbility is a registered charity dedicated to providing accessible, recreational, boating at no cost to people of all ages who are deprived of the opportunity by virtue of their physical limitations or personal circumstances.
Our dock, on 16-Mile Creek adjoining Busby Park, is fully accessible as are the on-site washrooms and the pontoon boat that transports our guests on an hour long voyage of discovery into a wild life sanctuary right in the heart of downtown Oakville. All trips are provided free of charge thanks to the donations that we receive and the dedication of the volunteers who crew the boat.
We are committed to improving the lives of persons with disabilities and the disadvantaged by enabling them to spend time on the water, in safety and with dignity, relaxing in the company of their friends, families, and companions.
