The Lake Canoe Instructor course teaches participants how to teach introduction lake canoe skills courses. Successful participants will also be able to teach Waterfront clinic and Canoeing basics course and assist on Intermediate Lake skill or instructor courses. If you are interested in leading canoe trips, building canoeing skills in your community and/or region, or interested in improving your own canoeing and teaching skills, this is the course for you! It is the industry standard in Canada for guides, trip leaders, and outdoor recreationists, as it is a nationally recognized certification. Successful participants will receive two certifications: Intermediate Lake Canoe Skills and Tandem Lake Canoe Instructor.

The course will be taught by Cathy Allooloo from NARWAL Northern Adventures. To learn more about Cathy, check out her bio.
