Canoe & Kayak Day

Whether you use a Canoe, Kayak or a Stand Up Paddle (SUP) Board, plan to participate in Canoe & Kayak Day.


Starting on the weekend of Sat June 11th, the CLPOA would like to challenge you to get out and paddle.


Begun in 2005 in celebration of the United Nations World Environment Day, it’s a unique annual kick-off to the paddle season on Chandos Lake.

In 2020 all the CLP0A events were canceled.

In 2021 Canoe and Kayak was limited to paddling locally in the Main lake or West Bay without the social gathering for brunch.

In previous years canoes and kayaks have been towed and/or car-topped to host location to join in on the fun.

You are encouraged  to paddle over in time for brunch on your own are come as a group with yours neighbours.


For those of you that would like a longer paddle please meet Iain Gorman at the markers by Doc Island at 11am.

We will be paddling to the West Bay narrows to meet  others along the way and those from West by 11:30am then return in time for the brunch and a group photo op.


David & Donna Cooper are hosting this years event.  (rain or shine).
