ParaSport Role: Partners
The sport of Paracanoe is based on sprint paddling with a few adaptations for persons with physical disabilities.
Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joys of canoe and kayak. The sport of Paracanoe is based on sprint paddling with a few adaptations for persons with physical disabilities. The fact you don’t need to be able to run or walk makes Paracanoe an ideal sport for people with limited use of their lower body. We offer both recreational and competitive opportunities. Try different boats and discover which works best for you. A comprehensive safety orientation is part of all programs and all equipment is provided. Paracanoe made its debut at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and CanoeKayak Canada has been a leading force internationally in making the sport accessible to everyone.
We acknowledge the land on which ParaSport® Ontario was built is the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today Toronto (also known as Tkaronto) is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.
