Timmins kayaking










Steering Committee for the Great Canadian Kayak Challenge & Festival approved a request from the Timmins Fur Council to lead the 50:50 draw at this year’s festival. All proceeds from this initiative will be re-invested locally to support conservation & environmental projects including and not limited to:

  • Canoe/kayak route portage route clearing and maintenance,
  • Mattagami River sturgeon monitoring program,
  • Nuisance beaver dam mitigation,
  • Nuisance animal relocation,
  • Fish spawning bed restorations,
  • Fish stocking,
  • Wilderness garbage clean-up and public education
  • and more

The positive impacts from the work of the Timmins Fur Council does not go unnoticed and is extremely important from a tourism and quality of life. 

There will be three draws occuring at the Festival, August 24th, 25th and 26th.  Time to be determined.  Ticket purchasers must be present at the time of draw to win.
