About The Championships & CanMas
The Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Championships are in their 115th year. CanMas was created in 1986 with the goal of keeping competitors in the sport after reaching their peak, bringing former competitors back to the sport and new paddlers into the sport.
The Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Championships & CanMas are hosted by clubs in eastern Canada for three years, with the fourth year of competition being hosted by a club in western Canada. This is the third time in its 115 year history that the Canadian Championships have been hosted by Wascana Racing Canoe Club, who previously hosted the event in 2006 and 2010.
Over 1000 athletes are expected to be competing on Wascana Lake over the 6 days of competition, including many of Canada’s Olympic and World Championship athletes. It is an exciting opportunity for senior national team athletes to represent their home club with the goal of winning the Championship Burgee. It is also an important competitive opportunity for U23 and Junior athletes to continue to develop towards future selection to national teams.
This event is free for the general public. This is your chance to see Canada’s Olympians and those who will represent Canada at the 2015 Toronto Pan Am Games in action!
