Petrie Island Canoe Club offers opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities to get out on the water and enjoy our beautiful Ottawa River. The sport of sprint canoe/kayak provides opportunities for both recreational and competitive paddling. Race opportunities are available at the local, divisional, provincial, and national levels.

We offer a FREE just-try-it-out session for potential para athletes so that they can get a tour of the facility and equipment, and learn more about what the sport is all about.
