The Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival is pleased to announce that the event has won yet again another “Top 100 Festival” at the
Festivals and Events Ontario conference .

This event, now in it’s 12th year, has continued to represent the best of our community. This is accomplished by the dedicated volunteers on the steering committee, day of event volunteers, not for profit organizations, sponsors and supporters, area businesses as well as various departments of the City of Timmins, who all pitch in to make our community shine during this three day event.

This award is much coveted and The Great Canadian Kayak Challenge and Festival was up against some of the stiffest competition in the province.  We are honoured to be on this list of the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario. The hard work put in in the months before and during the festival is being recognized by our peers in the festival industry.

This award belongs to our community and without the support of volunteers sponsors and dedicated individuals it just couldn’t happen.

Congratulations to everyone who has a hand in this fantastic festival
