Awsome Canoe Video – Canadian Canoe Culture

Paul Pinkerton

In this great video about canoeing in Ontario Canada you really get the feel of what it is to canoe and what getting out there and having some adventures is all about. It’s a beautifully put together video that inspires you to get out there and paddle.

Canoeing is a past time and sport shared by millions of people the world over and it’s well worth looking into if you have not experienced it.

There’s so much variation that will suit anyone and everyone, from white water and enclosed canoes through to placid lakes where you can feel completely free of the world.


“If it is love that binds people to places in this nation of rivers and in this river of nations then one enduring expression of that simple truth, is surely the canoe.” – James Raffan, adventurer, acclaimed author and Director Emeritus of the Canadian Canoe Museum.

Is there anything more Canadian than paddling? ‘Ontario’ is an Iroquoian word meaning ‘land of shining waters’. With over 400,000 lakes, countless rivers and heritage waterways in Ontario, we are connected by and to water and the Canoe is a symbol of that relationship.

Discover the different ways Ontarians have connected to our natural environment, each other and themselves through paddling. This film captures the human connection and bond created by Canada’s well-known craft & symbol, the canoe.

Through the stories of five paddlers across the province of Ontario, Canada – a majestic background both in it’s landscape & history – the film underscores the strength of the human spirit and how the canoe can be a vessel for creating deep and meaningful connections.
