The Masters category is a competitive and social opportunity for paddlers over the age of 25. This group is focused on long-term enjoyment of the sport, and often can serve as a fun introductory phase for those who have never paddled, or a continued enjoyment for those who competed earlier in life. You can find out more about the various Masters programs by contacting our member clubs.


Every year clubs from all around Canada race at the Canadian National Championships. This is a festival of paddle sport and showcases the best club paddlers from coast to coast. The events rotate between different regional hosts.

You can read more about the history and news of the National Championships in our News section, as well as on the Canoe Kayak Canada website.


“Champs” is an amazing end of the season competition amongst our Atlantic Division Canoe Kayak Canada clubs. The ADCKC U14 Championships is one of the largest events of its kind in the world, and is typically attended by over 800 athletes.
