Regional Member Associations

Regional Members consist of recognized provincial and/or territorial associations. Each Canadian province or territory has the right to make up to two recommendations for Regional Membership with Paddle Canada. Where the province or territory has two recognized Associations, one Regional Member is to represent canoeing and the other kayaking.

Where there is no recognized provincial and/or territorial association, or when the recognized provincial and/or territorial association fails to recommend after due notice, any other entity may apply as an Interim Regional Member Association. This Interim Regional Member Association must be approved by the Paddle Canada Board of Directors.

Regional and Interim Regional Member Associations have the right to attend all Board of Directors meetings as a non-voting observer, with full right to discussion but shall have no voting status.
