Project Canoe is a charity that helps inner city youth experience canoe trips in Northern Ontario.
Project Canoe focuses on youth who might otherwise miss out on the experience of outdoor adventure as a result of systemic or mental health barriers they face in their lives. These trips have proven to have a transformative effect on the youth who participate. In fact, in a survey of youth who have participated in the program, 90% said they had discovered something new and important about themselves. Through Georgian Bay Spirit Co’s support, Project Canoe will be able to run additional trips, thereby positively impacting the lives of additional youth at risk.
Due to COVID-19, Project Canoe has pivoted to running a virtual leadership program and anti-racism in the Outdoors workshops for the 2020 season.
