Paddle Boards are adapted as needed to compensate for any function the paddler has lost due to disability. While an adaptation may be made to the paddle grip or the seating support, the sport of paddling is not changed. Our Adaptive paddling programs are committed to providing full integration for anyone with a disability through the intentional use of equipment, teaching styles, and paddling locations. This ensures that we meet each paddler’s needs. Bursaries area available for all ages to have access to our programs. Equipment purchases have been made possible thanks to the donations of the various donors listed in our website. 

Certified staff and volunteers will instruct clients on how to use the adaptive paddling equipment in a fully inclusive paddling program. Clients with physical, cognitive, psycho-social and/or chronic conditions are welcomed to our programs. Individuals 5 to 18 years old can book sessions with Power For All. The program goals are related to the basics of physical literacy, sensory and motor development. Balance, coordination, physical strength and endurance, socialization and integration goals, executive function skills, are just a few of the goals that our clients work towards when engaged in our programs.

Who can attend?

Children with physical, cognitive and psycho-social challenges. Examples of some of the diagnosis are:

Developmental Coordination Disorder, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Learning Disabilities, Down Syndrome, Depression, Anxiety, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, etc.

What kind of adaptations are made?

Adaptations are made for physical, cognitive and psycho-social challenges.

New Clients

Services are delivered by an occupational therapist; when a participant is accepted, they will then go for an assessment to meet the instructors and to adapt a therapeutic/paddling plan according to their personal needs. Please ensure to book a date for an initial assessment in order to be able to attend program sessions.

When you are new to the Power for All programs, we want to meet you and set goals with you and your family in order to serve you better and ensure success in our program. Initial assessments cost $100 and need to be booked in order for us to approve registration in any programs in the summer. When clients come to an initial assessment, we ask that you bring any medical reports for diagnosis and any current treatment plans. Our occupational therapist will assess and ensure that we have the appropriate aids and equipment to serve you better in each of our sessions. For registering for an initial assessment this season we have two dates and several appointments available. To sign up for a spot please click the link and follow the instructions to register.

Requirements for Registration

We ask that a caregiver/parent comes with the client to each session. ABA workers or any other caregivers are expected to paddle and participate in our programs with the client they bring. This is especially important when the client does not know us and has not experienced our programs before.


In order to hold a spot for any sessions this year, we are requiring a deposit. This is to provide flexibility if restrictions change and we must adapt or adjust any sessions.

Deposit prices:

1 session: $50

2+ sessions: $100

We encourage families to reserve their spots, registration will open on our website after May 3, 2021. To pay for your deposit for this season please go to the following link and follow the instructions.

Third-Party funding

For families using Autism Funding, Respite funding from MCFD, At Home Program Funding or extended Health Plans with a note for Occupational Therapy referral, we still ask for a deposit to reserve your spots and this is required by cheque and mailed to us. At the end of the summer, when funding sources have paid, the deposit will be refunded to the families.

Please contact us for making arrangements for outside funding to be processed and to send your deposit.

Covid-19 Measures

For each session, a health screen will be required 24 hours prior to the session.

If the participant is sick, a new date will be accommodated for the families or a credit for future sessions will be granted. Refunds can be available minus the processing fee of the third party application that was used at time of payment (i.e. Paypal or Eventbrite). More details about our protocols will be provided to families upon registration. 

Session details

Sessions will be held Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Each day there will be a morning session (10:30 am – 11:30 am) and an afternoon session (1:00 pm – 2:00pm)

As it stands, we will have 5 participants per session.

We are thrilled to be able to offer our programs this summer. We hope that it can carry through so we can engage in our outdoor paddling ventures this summer 2021!

Why is all the paper work required?

Power For All programs are structured as occupational therapy groups for all clients to pursue therapeutic goals through accessing adventure. The questions asked in each form advise us as to the kind of adaptations and/or compensating devices we will use for each client. We learn about you, your needs, and your level of ability and function, so that we can more appropriately individualize your program.

What should I bring to my Initial Assessment appointment?

We value collaboration with other members of your treatment team. We also want to provide continuity of care in the work we do. Any previous reports indicating diagnosis, recommended strategies and interventions are highly encouraged to bring to your initial assessment appointment.

Who looks at the paper work? 

Trained and certified occupational therapists contracted to work for PFA will look at your paper work to guide and tailor resources to best meet your needs. They are the only ones authorized to look at your forms. Paddling buddies only receive the instructions and guidance related to the services each client will need. They only learn about the information relevant to ensure the success of each client in our sessions (i.e. types of transfer a client will need, types of support, any side effects of medications related to sun exposure, etc.)

When is the paper work due?

All paper work is required to be submitted and completed at least one week prior to the scheduled sessions. Late submission of paper work will result in a client not being able to attend the program. We require all the paper work so we can best prepare all the equipment, staff and volunteers necessary to ensure success and safety for all involved.

When do we show up for each session?

The time for each session has been especially arranged and reserved for each client.  We require everyone to show up on time so we can offer the full session to all participants. We are not able to make up any time missed due to being late nor finish sessions late.  We also do not recommend that clients show up more than 5 minutes earlier than the scheduled time to avoid too much waiting around, which may result in getting bored and/or impatient. Showing up on time is the best practice for everyone! Clients with different seating adaptations, will connect with staff to see when to come prior to the session.

What should I bring for each session?

This information is provided with you in the paper work package along with a map and directions to our site.

What can affect the length or distance clients travel in a session?

Adventures in the outdoors entail a great balance between measuring the risk for each participant and the fun that each participant is meant to have. Safety conditions on the water are always influenced by the weather (wind, rain, etc.) as well as the conditions of the river or ocean that we paddle in (speed of the current, water levels, etc.). We truly appreciate your flexibility and trust in our expertise as we guide each client through his/her session to ensure safety. Sometimes this guidance may involve paddling near to shore and a short distance only, other times, it may involve finishing a session earlier to avoid major incidents or hazards for clients.

What’s the refund policy?

We work really hard to reserve your spot; others are denied admission to our program due to limited spots. It is important for us that cancellations only occur due to an emergency or unexpected circumstances, otherwise payment for session is required when we are not notified at least one week in advance. In the event that Power For All has to cancel the session due to inclement weather or other circumstances compromising safety, we will provide opportunities for re-scheduling, if this is not possible, then as a last resort, a refund will be issued back to you. Refunds are rare and only will occur if rescheduling is not available. Should a refund be granted, a processing fee will be applied before the refund is returned.
