Carleton Place Canoe Club Celebrates its 125th in 2018!

2018 celebrates the 125th anniversary of Canada's oldest, continually run Canoe Club - the CPCC! 

To celebrate this exceptional anniversary, the CPCC will be implementing a special 125th anniversary donation program where both individuals and corporate donors can be part of the club’s history, and help us purchase a much needed War Canoe from the Bear Mountain Boat Company located in Westport, Ontario. The cost of the War Canoe is quite significant, but the purchase will last for many generations of Carleton Place Canoe Club paddlers. 


For more information about how to help with the $30,000.00 purchase, please visit our Donations & Sponsorship page!

Help purchase a new war canoe to celebrate the CPCC's 125th Anniversary!

The club has been in existence since 1893 and has provided the youth and general public of the area a great source of recreation and/or competitive racing for well over a century.


The operations of the club centre around the sport of Flatwater Sprint Canoe and Kayak Racing, yet the club and the facility that it is housed in offers a wide range of sporting and recreational activities. Programs operated by the club itself include racing and recreational canoe/kayak instruction, as well as adult programs which include Dragon Boat racing.
