Season Greetings from the PTCS Board members


As we move into a new year, it is always good to look back and reflect on 2016.  The Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2016, brought us to beautiful territories and a unique journey that will be remembered for years to come.  Take a moment to remember those times and reach out to a friend that you spent time with during that journey.

A special thanks to all of the Host communities: In-SHUCK-ch Nations – Lil’wat, Samahquam, Skatin, Xa’xtsa, and Sts’ailes for being a part of making 2016 a incredible PT canoe journey.

We have received updated information that the PTCJ 2017 is starting its planning and we know that it will be an incredible journey. We will provide updates as they become available.

The PTCS board members wish all the best to our partners, First Nation Communities  and Public Service agencies during this holiday season.

Happy Holidays,

The Pulling Together Canoe Society Board members

Rhiannon Bennett, President.


June update for PTCJ 2016

As our July date nears, we are hearing from the planning committee that the final details are coming together. We are acutely aware that this year’s journey is different from some of our previous years but equally interesting. One of our board members is working on a packing list for those of you about to take on the challenge of the “independent days”. We want to ensure all of you are aware of the limitations and pack according. 
Our planning committee promises a unique and overall enlightening and educational experience and the PT board is excited to see day one of PTCJ 2016. 
We have several social media sites. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and will be updating as the journey evolves. 
See you in a month!
PTCS Board.
