Canadian Canoe Culture

We invite you to discover the Canadian Canoe Culture in Ontario. Paddling, whether it’s in a canoe, kayak, raft or SUP, offers possibilities for deep and meaningful connections, adventures and learning. In a world that is increasingly disconnected, paddling brings you back to some of those basic rhythms – that feeling of being connected to the natural world and yourself. It provides the opportunity to shape, define and nurture who and what we are. Join in the conversation by using the hashtag #PaddleON.
