Canoes and kayaks 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 or adapted. Our Adaptive paddling programs are committed to providing full integration for anyone with a disability and the equipment, teaching style, and paddling locations that best meet the 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 from the Township of Langley and Variety Children’s Charity.
