The Ontario Backcountry Canoe Symposium

In case you have been hiding under a rock or hibernating for the winter – We wanted to make sure you know about the Ontario Backcountry Canoe Symposium that is coming up in April! 

With warmer weather comes everyone’s thoughts and dreams turning towards getting outside again for the paddling season. This event is a great way to kick off the season!  The symposium is a day all about our favorite past time – Paddling! You can listen to the great line up of speakers tell their stories, get trip ideas and locations, chat with like minded people and lots of your favorite bloggers and lots more.  What more can you ask for right before the ice leaves the lakes and paddling season begins! 

Speakers lined up include: 

Wally Schabel

Mercede Rogers

Hailey Sonntag 

Andrea Wilson 

Mike Ranta 

Stephen Coutts

Did we mention that we will be there? We love this event! You can bet your ass we will be there!
