The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario, has stewarded, for the last 20 years, the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft. More than 600 in number, the watercraft and their stories have a pivotal role to play in understanding our past and, our collective future. As part of our responsibility for this one-of-a-kind collection, we are building it a new home along the water’s edge. 
In 2013, the Senate declared The Canadian Canoe Museum and its collection a cultural asset of national significance.

Next Steps

The City of Peterborough is currently in the process of re-zoning 2077 Ashburnham Drive to allow for the use of the Museum. As part of this process, the Museum hosted a virtual public meeting on April 28th, 2021 to introduce the project to the community.

The re-zoning application will go before the City of Peterborough’s General Committee for consideration at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 7, 2021.
