Biosphere Member Profile: Wright’s Marina Ltd.

Wright’s Marina Limited is a third generation family business on the shore of Georgian Bay in Britt. First established in 1950, Graham and Karrie began their marina journey in 2000 with a goal to be more environmentally responsible. Wright’s Marina was designated a Clean Marine in the 1990s, and the Clean Marine Program values were firmly adopted in the early 2000s. Each update to the marina facilities was done with the environment in mind. Striving to lead by example, to also make choices to better protect the Georgian Bay area.  
 
Many land, water, and building improvements led to the 2010 Green Marine Award presented by the Canadian Safe Boating Council. Wright’s Marina became a Biosphere Member in 2013, which was the natural path to follow on the journey of environmental education.
 
In 2016, the boating community voted Wright’s Marina as the Boater’s Choice top Canadian Marina. They are humbled by the accolades bestowed in their efforts to provide a safe, clean and environmentally friendly marina for their patrons. Wright’s Marina has undergone many changes since 2000 in an effort  to shrink their  footprint. Together, we can be the difference as we continue on this journey together.
