Welcome to the Canadianportageproject WikiEdit

The Canadian Portage Project was designed to bring together the knowledge and experience of canoeists and kayakers everywhere in hopes of creating an accessible, visual, crowd sourced database of all the spectacular water routes that Canada has to offer. Through the CPP users can create and share content for the purpose of researching and exploring safe and enjoyable trips throughout our country.
