Our mission is to help develop, promote and teach safe and enjoyable recreational paddling for all Canadians regardless of ability, culture or age.

We seek to develop positive attitudes towards a healthy environment and to provide an understanding of and an appreciation for the canoe and kayak in Canadian Heritage.
