How We’ve Responded

In 2020, we shut down our spring and summer courses, but we were able to offer several courses in September and October. In 2021, we had to cancel May and early June courses, but we are operating through early October, Registration for Basic Canoeing Levels 1-2, 1-3, 3 and 4 courses can be found on the Courses page.

COVID-19 Refund Policy: If we cancel any courses due to Provincial or local Health Unit orders, we will refund 100% of your registration fee. If you cancel, a partial refund may be given. 

In order to operate SAFELY, we have:

  • followed the direction of ORCKA
  • re-written our Safety Plan
  • created protocols
  • purchased PPE and cleaning materials
  • adapted programs to ensure physical distancing
  • gained approvals from Brant County Health Unit, ORCKA, our insurer, the GRCA

We are looking forward to offering courses this year! If you would like to be kept informed, send an email to so that we can send you updates.
