The Four Pillars of Your Courses
Paddle Canada has four pillars that define our future and measure our progress: safety, education programs, environment and heritage. The first two are easily understood given the purpose and function of Paddle Canada. The last two pillars refer to the cultural identity of the Canadian paddling community, and are integral values to Paddle Canada and our programs.
As Kirk Wipper put it, “Our vessels have two pointy ends. One points back into our past; the past that tells the story of how Canada grew. The other end points to the future, reconnecting us to the important things in life: health, family and Canada’s peaceful and serene nature.”
