If you love paddling, consider Timmins for your canoe trips in Ontario. You will find comprehensive kayaking and canoeing guides for all the leisure events and competitions.  This festival draws paddlers and visitors from communities like Temiskaming Shores (New Liskeard, Haileybury, Cobalt), Sudbury, Cochrane, Kapuskasing, Temagami, Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, and London, Ontario, to name just a few.  We have had international paddlers vie against regional paddlers adding to the excitement of the event.
