Heart of Orléans BIA

Petrie Island Canoe Club (Sport)


We are a volunteer run, not-for-profit sports club and our mission is to serve the community by providing quality paddling programs. We are deeply passionate about the power of sport to transform the lives of kids. Being around positive role models and surrounded by a caring group of club families provides a social structure that supports healthy development and helps them to see the world differently as they mature and grow to their full potential. They learn how important it is to be solid leaders who have others’ best interests at heart, trustworthy and reliable teammates. Many of our club kids become club coaches, breaking into the job market without having to give up the sport they love. Athletes who continue in our sport through their teens make friends with people from across Canada and even around the world. Paddling is a particularly beautiful sport in which the whole family can participate for life. It keeps us grounded in our community and closely connected to nature.
