Canoe families and those interested in the Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2018.

The Pulling Together Canoe Journey 2018 planning committee is very close to announcing the final communities, locations and route in preparation for this year’s journey.   The Planning Committee has advised that they are in the final conversations and meetings with the partners and communities and they will provide the locations and route within two weeks.

We are able to provide the basics of this year’s journey, which include:

  • Date July 3-11th, 2018.
  • Victoria area to Vancouver area

The Canoe Family Registrations have been reviewed and canoe families notified by the selection committee this past week.

This year will again be unique, challenging and an opportunity to bring together the Pulling Together Canoe families and continue the work we do each year.

We ask that all of you that have Canoe Awakenings, or events (Fund Raising) to post in the Facebook Group – FB – Click here , so we can support each other and get the word out.
