Salus Marine Pro Purchase Program

Beginning in 1999, from the basement of his home in Waterloo, Ontario, Steve Wagner designed the first SALUS PFD. Every one of their PFDs is still manufactured in Canada by their forty employees who service paddlers, sailors, active families, and rescue professionals around the world with award winning PFD’s. SALUS products are a mainstay of the Canadian paddling scene and Paddle Canada is proud to announce their new partnership with SALUS Marine Wear, a family owned and operated company.
