About Us

WWCKC Mandate

The Waterloo Wellington Canoe & Kayak Club is a volunteer not-for-profit sporting organization blending the experience of the outdoors within a social setting. The focus is the enjoyment of canoeing, kayaking, camping, skiing, snow-shoeing and other outdoor activities, while preserving the canoe routes and wilderness areas of Ontario. Our members participate in planning and providing activities such as whitewater or flatwater canoeing and kayaking, or cross-country skiing. Through the efforts of our membership the club seeks to embrace the challenge of wilderness adventure throughout the various seasons.


To make available low cost canoeing, kayaking, and other activities for its members.
To improve members' skills through making available skill development courses and workshops.
To provide interesting adventures with competent leadership.
To preserve the environment through adherence to no-trace camping, and through volunteering.

How You Can Help the Club

Our club always needs volunteers and there are lots of ways you can help. For example, some people organize trips--Tuesday night paddles in the summer, all-day river explorations in the spring, multi-day lake trips in the autumn and winter weekend retreats.

Every year we also need a group of ten people to join the Board to formally manage the affairs of the club. There is plenty to do, for example:
  • Managing the membership
  • Communicating with club members and the general public about upcoming activities
  • Inviting guest speakers
  • Arranging training courses
  • Editing the newsletter & the website
Please read the club election process document to learn more.
