A shared love of exhilaration and performance brought Mazda and CanoeKayak Canada together in 1995.
With support from Mazda, CanoeKayak Canada grooms world-class canoe and kayak athletes and coaches for success at the international level. And by all accounts it’s working; Canadian athletes have paddled their way to 24 Olympic medals.
CanoeKayak Canada is the national organization that governs sprint, whitewater and marathon canoe and kayak in Canada. Founded in 1900, the organization represents more than 60 clubs across Canada. CanoeKayak Canada is also committed to the sport’s long-term development with programs such as Canoe Kids, the Aboriginal Paddling Initiative and Paddleall for people with a disability.
