Contact: Paula Loranger 705-474-5420 Race with the pros or join the recreational paddlers as they paddle and portage their canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards 64 km from Trout Lake, North Bay to the Mattawa Island Conservation Area.

The scenery is spectacular, the portages are challenging, the pride of accomplishment earns you bragging rights for following in the historic wake of Voyageurs who followed the path of the Huron and Ojibway as they travelled this Heritage River enroute between the Great Lakes to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. A 13 km family and youth race launches from Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park, joining the finish line at Mattawa Island (with only 1 portage) to give beginners and up-and-coming paddlers a taste of the river and the race. www.mattawarivercanoerace.ca
