To paddle a canoe efficiently is to be truly Canadian. Our canoe programing is offered under Paddle Canada’s national certification program. The Introduction Canoe Program is designed to introduce participants to canoeing in the various disciplines.  The program emphasizes learning boat control so that paddlers will gain the skills and knowledge to be safe and have fun. The Intermediate Canoe Program course is designed to introduce participants to the thrill of paddling at a higher level. Emphasis is on greater boat control, safety, and fun. The Advanced Canoe program is the highest level of certification awarded and is designed to offer candidates the opportunity to improve their skills under more challenging conditions.
