  • We've added a new page about the Ottawa Riverkeeper Swim Guide. See the Ottawa Riverkeeper page.

  • The 2018 paddling season is off to a great start. We have already had two very successful Rideau Experience (REX) events and last weekend was our 5th annual Rideau Paddlefest complete with Voyageur Canoe Races. If you or your company are interested in having an experience on the Rideau give our REX coordinator, Stew Hammill, a call to arrange an adventure.

  • In May, Max Finkelstein did a great presentation about last year’s Four Winds Brigades momentous trip from each of the four directions by water into Ottawa for Canada’s 150th birthday celebration. The presentation, hosted by the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) was held at the Smiths Falls’ Station Theatre and was well received by an enthusiastic crowd.

  • Last Saturday (June 2) was the date for our 5th annual Rideau Paddlefest. It was a great day with exhibitors from all around Ontario and many wonderful waterfront activities including our own Voyageur Canoe Races. The winners were the “Ridge Combers" team from the town of Smiths Falls in the 200 m race and the Functional Performance Fitness “Warriors” who won the 500m race.

  • A group of avid photographers competing in our new Rideau Paddlefest Photo Contest covered the entire event. If you have photos of the event that you would like to enter in the contest, the rules can be found here: Paddlefest Photo Contest Rules (PDF). The deadline for entries to this contest is this Saturday, June 9, 2018. Once the contest has been judged, the photos will be posted on our Facebook Paddlefest Page.
