We have partnered with WMA to offer the full complement of Wilderness first aid levels. This includes occupational CPR and first aid courses. WMA directly works with and follows best practices and guide lines set out by  the Wilderness Medical Society. WMA also only uses experienced professionals, doctors, nurses and paramedics to deliver their curriculum.

Paddle Canada is the national standard for instructors and guides! Our Instructor trainers have decades of experience and feel confident that after this course; not only will you be able to build on your skills but also get the tools to effectively lead, train and teach your clients to their own learning styles and skill levels. 


From flat water to the river. Young paddlers will learn the skills to maneuver their own boats working with their partners. They will gain an understanding of how water and currents work. Build a safety skill set to be confident and make good decisions. Learn skills for self  rescue and companion rescue. Ultimately bringing home the skills and knowledge to lead the family to the river.

For the family: The best way to get into remote settings with the family is on the water. We can help build confidence by  giving you easy and practical skills, and help you build your tool box for planning a safe and fun trip. 

For couples: Getting in a canoe with your bestie can be one of the best ways to escape together. But when the going gets tough, understanding each other's roles and having the ability to communicate well is essential. Team building at its best.
