The RCC acknowledges that it is located on the unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation. RCC recognizes the Algonquins as the customary keepers and defenders of the Ottawa River Watershed and its tributaries. We honour the peoples, land, and waterways of the Anishinabe Algonquin Nation. We honour their long history on these waters and the values of our Host Nation.

CKC/ Indigenous Advisory Council has created a worksheet for Canoe Clubs to complete to help develop awareness and inclusivity: Starting Conversations: Paddling, Indigenous Peoples, and Reconciliation. Clubs are encouraged to share their results with CKC/IAC.
