What should you Bring?

The Route

The Amici’s Canoe Heads for Kids route is 7.5km of portaging and 7.5 km of paddling along the Toronto waterfront. The portage begins at Harbourfront Canoe and Kayak Centre (283 Queens Quay West) and continues west along the Martin Goodman Trail to Sir Casimir Gzowski Park (1751 Lakeshore Blvd West). At Sir Casimir Gzowski Park, participants rest and have a bite to eat before commencing their paddle along the waterfront back to HCKC. The route is marked by volunteer route marshals who are there to cheer you on, mark the kilometres as you pass, and respond to any emergency situations - they've got your back!

Event Schedule


Whomp, whomp, all events gotta have 'em. Keep in mind number one is the most important!
