That foundation is of course, the organization that has been built over the last two decades: A world-class collection that inspires connection, curiosity and new understanding for tens of thousands of people across the country and around the world – every year.

That foundation is transformational experiences and exploration that sees students opening their minds in the galleries; community members connecting through artisanry; people of all ages getting on the water and learning to paddle; and exhibitions and events that spark conversation and collaboration – every day.

That foundation is the result of your support. And without it, there would no future – no necessity for a one-of-a-kind facility that will care for our collection, allow our educational and public programming to expand, and increase our presence and profile locally and nationally.

So, as our new museum project progresses and the future comes into focus, we remain committed to our core mission. But we need your continued support. Your contribution to The Canadian Canoe Museum’s ongoing sustainability will ensure that our foundation stays strong.

On this once-in-a-lifetime journey, between now and opening day, please help us stay the course. Invest in the transformational experiences that have built this organization – from the ground up.
