Canoe Country

FROM BIRCHBARK TO KEVLAR, the canoe has taken historic and modern explorers alike over this country's rivers, rapids and lakes.

In April, James Raffan will be in Ottawa with his unique audiovisual presentation on one of our favourite icons. An accomplished paddler, canoe scholar and best-selling author, Raffan spoke to packed houses during his last Society tour and will again share his passion for this elegantly simple mode of transport. In literature and art, Raffan explores how the canoe has cruised its way into Canadian culture.
