About Us

It All Comes Naturally is owned and operated by Greg Derbyshire, BES, BEd, OCT.

After enjoying 30 years of classroom teaching (and taking his students outdoors as much as he could), Greg retired and then returned to his first love – outdoor experiential education. He now works part time at nature centres for the GRCA and owns and operates It All Comes Naturally.

This involves a lot of time on the water teaching ORCKA-certified canoeing courses, and guiding day trips and wilderness trips. Occasionally he gets to go on recreational backcountry canoe trips with family and friends. His ORCKA certifications include Basic Instructor, Canoe Tripping Instructor 1, and Moving Water 1A. He currently holds Wilderness and Remote First Aid & CPR/AED Level C certification and is a Certified Hike Leader through Hike Ontario.

Greg looks forward to offering canoeing courses that will meet your needs!
