DONATE FOR THE DOCK
The Rideau Canoe Club is in urgent need of new docks.
With the support of the City of Ottawa, the Club has launched a fundraiser to raise $50,000 for a series of articulated floating docks.
These new docks will increase our dock space and provide a safe launch for all paddlers, including our dragon boat athletes.
In addition, the docks are designed to ensure accessibility for our Para and Paddle All athletes.
Every donation will be matched dollar for dollar by the City of Ottawa, and every donation over $10.00 will be issued a tax receipt.
All donors will be recognized on our fundraising site, and major donors over $250 will be recognized on a future donor board at the Rideau Canoe Club.
(Donors who wish to remain anonymous may opt to do so on the Sport 4 Ontario donation page)
Thanks and see you on the dock in 2021!

A group of RCC alumni are raising funds, as part of the RCC dock fundraiser, to have one of the new floating docks named “Lucy’s Dock”. Lucy Slade was a Rideau paddler in the 80s and 90s. She was an amazing athlete winning medals at the Pan Am Games and Canada Summer Games. More importantly, she was a kind-hearted, gutsy, devoted teammate. Lucy went on to coach at Rideau and then at the CascadeCanoe Club where her two sons now paddle. In 2011 at age 38, Lucy died from skin cancer.
Lucy’s dad Charles Slade has played a significant role at the Rideau Canoe Club and in the provincial and national paddling community. He was RCC Commodore from 2006 – 2013, is a lifetime member, has served on the EOD,CKO and CKC Boards, directed the Ottawa Dragonboat Festival and continues to officiate at regattas.
We want to continue to honour Lucy’s memory at Rideau. Athletes young and old launching boats from a dock in Lucy’s name would be a great tribute to Lucy and the Slade family. Our goal is to raise $10 000 in Lucy’s name (as part of the Club dock fundraiser). We are off to a great start and hope that, with your help, we can reach this goal.
To donate to the RCC dock fundraiser, please follow the donate link and email Laura.Hodgson@rideaucanoeclub.ca to indicate you want your donation tagged for “Lucy’s Dock”.
