Reaching over our hundreds of thousands of lakes and rivers, and historically connecting the Indigenous, English and French cultures, the canoe grounds us in the land and in Canadian history.

Watch this trailer for the evocative documentary film that captures the human connection and the remarkable bond created by Canada's well-known craft and national symbol, the canoe. It explores how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connections. It is a true reflection of what the Canadian Canoe Culture looks like today. Watch the full documentary here.  

Today, the experience has expanded beyond the canoe to encompass various forms of paddling. Connecting the beauty of our landscapes with physical exercise and spiritual well-being, there's nothing more Canadian than exploring by paddle. And here in Ontario, there's so much to explore. Find great paddling adventures.
