Each season, club teams from across the country converge on a single location to test their skills and stamina against the best the Country has to offer. In 2022, the event will be held in scenic Shawinigan, Quebec.
Although the Canadian Championships is a U16 + age event, often younger athletes earn qualifications. War Canoes and Crew boats in many cases contain younger paddlers and the crews serve as the athlete’s first exposure the prestigious event. We do have U14's entered in U16 crews trying to earn qualifications in both War Canoe and small boats.

The Calgary Canoe Club takes a 'TEAM' approach to fees and all paddlers share in common costs for the team to compete. examples of shared costs include: Boat Transportation to/from the regatta, cost to have coaches at the event, club entry fees. Athletes will be responsible to cover fees for flights, meals and hotel rooms. The greater the CCC team size, the lesser the athletes individual contribution to the shared components.
The club is working to facility fund-raising opportunities to help bring team costs down. Please come to the Thursday night info meeting with your best ideas and willingness to contribute. Fundraising can be done before the event and depending on the specific project we may be able to extent nationals fundraisers until the Year-end Banquet on October 21st.
