Paddle Canada's national paddling programs have proven themselves to be the ideal mechanism to extend and deliver our mandates of environmental awareness and protection as well as the preservation of the canoe and kayak as a part of our national heritage. More Canadians are, and continue to be, exposed to Paddle Canada's message through our instructional programs than ever before.
About our Programs: As part of the Paddle Canada teaching format, paddlers are taught the technical skills to help them experience safer and more enjoyable recreational paddling experiences.
We offer skill and instructor courses in the following disciplines:
- Waterfront program
- Introduction to Canoeing
- Lake Canoe
- Whitewater Canoe
- Canoe Tripping
- Canoe Poling

Paddlers are also taught the Leave No Trace principles for active environmental awareness and protection in order to help ensure that we can all continue to enjoy Canada's many waterways and wilderness for years to come.
