The Society works closely with tourism, municipalities and businesses to benefit all participants and the community.

Carol Ships Parade of Lights Society is dedicated to the promotion of tourism in the Greater Vancouver area in conjunction with the development of interrelated marine activities.

Carol Ships Society plans to develop a full festival for both onshore and offshore activities. Parade of Lights is available as a venue for non-profit shore side events to raise significant funds for worthwhile causes.
