We are extremely happy to inform you that our Ontario Trillium Foundation grant application to fund part of the new racecourse and the equipment associated with it was successful!

Our commodore Ron Sibthorpe said that "Hosting Nationals again at the Rideau canoe club has been our goal for many years now. Getting this grant to build a quality race course makes it possible. I am very excited to be part of such an incredible event. A big thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for supporting our cause."

The racecourse not only benefits the canoe and kayak sprint racing but also the dragon boat programs. "This course will be a legacy for years to come." was Dragon Boat program director Scott Seaby's comment.
