The National Canoe Program was launched in the mid-1970’s. The latest edition, launched in 2009, saw the start of some significant changes for national instructors, one being the introduction of three distinct levels. The canoe programs have expanded into Big Canoe, Coastal Canoeing, and Style from its foundation base of Lake, Moving Water, and Poling.
