Northern Ontario 7-day Flatwater Canoeing for Indigenous Youth

Discover how to make powerful choices that lead to success, how to overcome challenges, and how there’s more in you than you know in the jaw-dropping scenery of Temagami region. Temagami is home to some of the last remaining old-growth forests in Ontario as well as the oldest mountains in North America that now are worn hills. This area has over 4,000 km of canoe routes and has been maintained as a vast wilderness area including provincial parks and crown land. The area has been home to the Anishinabeg people for centuries, including Bear Island as well as pictographs on Lake Obabika. With colonialization came resource development, mining, and forestry. This area today is frequented by those seeking wilderness, stars, and adventure.
