CANOE HERITAGE

ADCKC is working to create a strong relationship with the Indigenous Peoples of Atlantic Canada.

The history of the the canoe in Atlantic Canada begins with the First Nations people of the region. Today, paddle sport offers a meaningful way to enjoy sport and recreation, but it is important to continue to acknowledge the foundation and heritage of canoeing.

The ADCKC is currently working on efforts for greater representation within the current club system, racing opportunities, recognition, education and development camps in partnership with indigenous communities and sport leaders. As an organization, we are also striving to support NAIG 2020 and the introduction of the first Team Mi’kmaw Nova Scotia Canoe Kayak Team.
