Ways to Support

A $40M campaign is a monumental task

Every contribution to the campaign is a significant one. As we join together from coast to coast to coast, collectively as one, we will ensure this national treasure and all that it represents is not lost for future generations.

Your support of The Canadian Canoe Museum will enable us to:

  • Build a purpose-built facility 
  • Provide Class “A” museum environment control to support the collection
  • Build and deepen Collaborative Relationships with Indigenous Peoples and communities
  • Grow educational, on-water and artisan programming
  • Increase access to the entire collection
  • Expand our audiences and increase visitorship
  • Diversify revenue streams to strengthen financial sustainability


Join us on the adventure of a lifetime.
Your gift brings us one step closer to the water’s edge!

Ways of Giving

There are unique ways of planning your gift to The Canadian Canoe Museum Capital Campaign, some of which offer increased tax benefits. More than one type of gift combination may also work well for you. We suggest all donors seek professional advice as to their own personal financial situation.

Move the Collection

Moving more than 600 watercraft and 500 paddles, along with hundreds of artifacts and an entire archival library collection to a new location is no small feat. We need your help on this final portage to get the collection to its new waterfront home.
