The paddling season is in full swing and we’re happy to announce a new volunteer program providing easier access to volunteer opportunities at CPCC.

Participating with volunteer opportunities ensures that the Carleton Place Canoe Club continues to offer quality programs that are affordable to the community. These opportunities also bring our member families together to build lasting friendships and foster a sense of community within Carleton Place. As noted during registration, the club has asked all families to commit to assisting and participating with Club events and fundraising opportunities. Each member family is expected to commit twenty-five (25) volunteer hours to club events and fundraising efforts. Member families may choose to opt out of volunteer commitment in exchange for a volunteer fee ($250) charged upon member registration.   1 hour of volunteer points will be given for each hour of time volunteered.  

For a list of current volunteer opportunities and to sign up for these activities, please check out

Instructions: Choose an open slot, click the Volunteer button and provide the required information. If you are a new Volunteer, you will receive an e-mail from to verify your email address. You must verify your email address by clicking on the link in that email. The slot will be locked for 10 minutes allowing you time to verify. After 10 minutes you may still confirm your slot as long as someone else hasn't taken it yet.

Please note that more opportunities will be made on an ongoing basis,  so check the ivolunteer page on a regular basis.  If you have already completed some volunteer work for the Club, please email with detail about your service.  This will be cross referenced with the lead committee member.

Although CPCC provides a wide range of volunteer opportunities, we recognize finding time may be challenging. As such, we are introducing a “food for hours” exchange where members are credited with volunteer hours for donated food to support upcoming events. You will be credited 1 hour for every $10 food donation. An initial food list has been provided, which will be updated regularly. If you are interested in donating, please contact to discuss what items you would like to donate. For the full food list, click here.

 Interested in completing all of your volunteer hours right now?? We have an immediate need for 6 members to participate on CPCC’s 125th Anniversary Regatta and Celebration. You will be credited ALL 25 HOURS for your participation!

 We have big plans to celebrate this special year (July 21st) and this committee will be instrumental with completing all planning activities leading up to regatta and evening celebration. Please contact right away before these positions are filled.
