Welcome Michelle – Paddle Canada’s New Executive Director!

Our newly appointed Executive Director, Michelle McShane will be officially starting on October 15, and has already spent some time getting to know office staff and board members. A few words from her:

Hello Everyone, I am super excited to be joining Paddle Canada, and I look forward to meeting and working with many of you over the years to come.

I live just north of Kingston with my husband and two sons, spending as much time as we can outside exploring trails and lakes around us. I’ve been in the outdoor recreation industry for over 20 years, starting out as a summer camp canoe guide, moving on to guiding and instructing canoe, kayak and SUP. For the past 18 years I have been the manager, buyer, instructor, and event planner for Trailhead, a locally owned outdoor store in Kingston. I’m very much looking forward to this career change, learning, and growing with Paddle Canada.

Feel free to drop me a line and introduce yourself at any time: [email protected]
