The 64 km Mattawa River Canoe Race tests marathon canoe racers’ skill, strength and stamina as they paddle and portage in the footsteps of 19th century Voyageurs in Northern Ontario.
It’s a marathon like no other. And in 2018, you can be a part of it and help celebrate the 42nd Anniversary of the NBMCA’s Mattawa River Canoe Race!
Your sponsorship supports this historic race and more importantly, the NBMCA environmental, outreach and stewardship programs.

Importance of Sponsors

Your sponsorship of this 40 year old event will support the NBMCA's environmental education, outreach and stewardship programs which encourage children and adults to help balance human, economic and environmental needs in the future.

Monetary Sponsorships

Monetary contribution is an essential part of this event; we would not be able to hold this event or offer our outreach and stewardship programs if it were not for the generosity of our sponsors. We use these funds to ensure a quality event that includes race safety, dinner and awards. It’s an investment in our future by educating our community about the importance of the environment and our natural world.
