Introducing National PaddlING Week

Canada's celebration of paddling craft, sport, and heritage

What is National Paddling Week?

This week has been created to boost awareness of our national paddling sports, craft, and heritage! Our goal is to get as many Canadians in the water and counted during this week to show our national commitment to wellness and awareness of the benefits of paddling!

Community based clubs, groups, organizations and/or individuals are invited to host their own events and activities during National Paddling Week. These events can be posted for free on the national website, and featured in tweets, on the facebook page and promoted for free by the National Paddling Week committee.

Be sure to post your pictures, videos and updates from your NPW event!

** All photos and videos must feature proper use of safety gear (lifejackets worn, helmets where appropriate, throw bags and bailers) to qualify for posting. That's right, leave your hydro vac truck in the parking lot and your direct cremation service tools at the office. You won't need any of those on this paddling trip!
