Biographical history

The Northwest Voyageurs Canoe and Kayak Club was established in 1964 as a part of the Canadian Youth Hosteling Association (CYHA). On 1988 November 16, the group separated from the CYHA and was incorporated under the Societies Act as a fully autonomous organization. The Club aims to promote canoeing in Alberta, as well as the exploration and preservation of Alberta's most historically significant rivers. To accomplish this, the Club organizes trips to various rivers throughout the canoeing and kayak season. Although many members of the Club have created their own paddling clubs, the Northwest Voyageurs Canoe and Kayak Club remains active and continues to offer courses ranging from safety for beginners to more advanced techniques for seasoned members.
