Two people in a canoe


If there’s one single element that has sculpted Canada, it’s water. The canoe is the icon that binds Canadians to nature, each other and to their cultural heritage. The Canadian Canoe Culture has evolved to include all forms of paddling – canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and rafting.   For a unique insight into the Canadian Canoe Culture, watch ‘The Canoe’, a short film that tells the stories of five Ontarians whose lives have been shaped by paddling.
