Canoe Certification

We live in a province with thousands of lakes to enjoy and discover. But we must know how to be safe. Each year SaskOutdoors organizes a Paddle Canada Canoe Training course to teach educators how to safely take a class of students out onto a body of water for an outdoors educational experience.


Paddle Canada Course Information

Paddle Canada instructors can provide instruction in a number of paddling related areas. Paddle Canada courses are often chosen by school divisions as part of the requirements for leading school canoeing programs. Some of Paddle Canada’s most popular courses include lake water and moving water canoe courses, camping, kayaking and SUP courses. Paddle Canada courses offer certification levels appropriate for paddlers of a variety of skill levels. All courses have set, minimum time requirements and prerequisites. Evaluation may include on water testing, written testing as well as oral comprehension checks. On-water and on-shore sessions are often alternated to provide an opportunity for rest, drinks and snacks. Summaries of the courses can be found on paddlecanada.com.
