The Waterloo Wellington Canoe & Kayak Club is a friendly group and we welcome new and returning members to join us during the many activities we hold year-round. Our members live in the communities in the Grand River watershed and beyond-- including Kitchener, Waterloo, Ayr, Guelph, Brantford, Fergus and Listowel. Some members come from further afield including near Hamilton, London and Toronto. The membership is broad and far flung because the activities take us to many rivers in Southern Ontario and beyond.                  (Click the picture to enlarge it.)


The club does not own equipment such as canoes and kayaks, nor do we have a clubhouse. But members without a canoe can be matched to go on a paddle with a member who does have a canoe, or they can rent a canoe or kayak for the excursion.

Often members join before they have a boat of their own and by paddling in different boats, they decide what equipment best suits their needs. Some people have belonged for years without owning a boat, so it may work out for you to join even if you don't have a canoe or kayak.

Paddling activities include Tuesday evening paddles close to home, courses on flat, moving or white water and weekend or even week-long trips. Paddling takes place April to November, with other outdoor activities during the winter months, including hikes, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and presentations related to canoeing and kayaking.

If you enjoy paddling, please consider joining our group. If you are not sure, you can join us for a first paddle at no cost. For further paddles there is a $5 fee that covers insurance costs. Check the Activities Calendar and contact the trip co-ordinator. Most trips are posted by the end of March, but additions and changes will be noted on the website, so we recommend that members keep an eye on it.

Membership in 2015-2016 is $30 for an individual or $45 for a family. Membership is for one year, beginning on October 1 and ending on September 30 of the following year. For more information see the Membership Application/Renewal page.
