for 2020:


Due to the circumstances surrounding safety of Canadians, we must announce that the three Brigades planned for this summer will be postponed. The Peace River – Passing the Paddle and True North brigades until summer of 2021 and the Metis Crossing Brigade until late summer or fall.  Further information will be shared through the newsletter, on Facebook, and the website as organizers of the brigades look for new dates.

On behalf of the Board we would like to thank the brigade organizers and keen Crew Chiefs, for their work, as we well know that Brigades involve a great deal to work to plan and organize for.


If paddling in these brigades you will need a CVBS Participant Membership as found here.

(Your CVBS memberships provides our public liability, Director & Officer liability, and some modest 3rd party medical insurance for all members.)
