PC SK Instructors Can Now Run Courses in Pacific Rim Parks, BC

Paddle Canada is pleased to announce that Parks Canada has added Paddle Canada Sea Kayak qualifications to the list of certifications required to lead commercial sea kayaking Paddle Canada courses in the Broken Group Islands of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Although all major parks with commercial outfitting requirements recognize Paddle Canada certifications as the national standard for paddlesports training and certification, some exceptions have remained.

This breackthrough is the result of hard work and lobbying by Paddle Canada, Graham Ketcheson and Mike Gilbert to Parks Canada over the last ten years.

Instuctrors can access the application materials to be qualified to guide commercially here.
