As an integral part of the Canadian Search and Rescue (SAR) System, the mission of Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) is to save lives on the water. Our 1,000 plus members strive daily to provide world-class marine SAR and boating safety services.
In 1978, various Canadian volunteer marine Search and Rescue (SAR) groups decided to create a consolidated organization that would allow them to coordinate their equipment, knowledge, and training on a national scale. Of the six Marine Rescue associations that were formed across Canada, Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) is the organization which serves British Columbia and the Yukon.
