Our
purpose

DSC0570 modif3

Let's be honest: every canoe and kayak we produce leaves a footprint. We wish we could change that, but to have zero impact on the planet, we'd have to produce nothing. We want to get everyone outside and into our waterways, but we also want to make sure we protect and rebuild compromised natural areas and do our best to minimize our environmental impact through sustainable business practices. That's why we produce all of our canoes and kayaks locally. We use the environmentally-friendliest products we can and plan to use our business to leverage the positive impact we can have on both our community and the planet. It's the least we can do.

Made in Canada

Local all the way! We believe that minimizing environmental costs and maintaining high standards are more important than profit margins. With strict criteria for quality, we use the environmentally friendliest materials available and work exclusively with Canadian suppliers who share our values.

Open Dock Policy

We’re a team of nature lovers with a passion for paddling. Our open dock policy means that whenever they choose, our employees and their friends can head to our president's dock, grab a canoe or kayak and enjoy a ride on the water -- before, after or during their workday.

We recently moved to a smaller and more efficient facility. Furnished with refurbished furniture and reclaimed wood, it helps remind us of our purpose every single day.

Refurbished

We don't just want to sell more boats; we want to provide a way for people to explore the great outdoors. That’s why we encourage you to buy refurbished before new. Save money and reduce your environmental impact.

Clean up

We want to preserve our natural playgrounds, restore them and clean them up so that the next generation can experience the feeling of being lost in a pristine scenery. Every year, millions of pounds of trash goes into our lakes, rivers and trails. This is why we are committed to take one bag of trash out of the wilderness for every canoe sold. Join the movement and clean up every time you get outside. Let’s leave no trace.

Give a second life

We collect gallons of windshield washer to give them a second life. With a pair of scissors, these plastic containers that fill the garbage at the service stations, are transformed into reusable containers.
