The Canadian Canoe Foundation is a registered charity that develops watershed-health projects that culminate in youth environmental leadership canoe-trips. Our  participants return to their communities as Water Leaders, educating and motivating their family and friends about environmental issues in their watershed and what citizens can do to work towards solutions.

The Foundation partners with environmental organizations who are working to protect the lakes and rivers we travel. Our youth participants get an on-the-water education about the work that is being done to protect Canada's water resources and are provided opportunities to become active in the conservation work of our partnering organizations.

Please explore our site to find out more about our programs and how you could find yourself exploring Canada by canoe this summer!
