Join us for a free screening of The Peel Project!
The Peel Project follows six Canadian artists as they paddle into the arctic to create, learn and grow through disconnecting and reconnecting in the wild. The film encapsulates much of what we aspire to create on Project Canoe trips in Algonquin Park; it is a raw glimpse into life on a canoe trip as they overcome challenges, bask in the beauty that is the Canadian wilderness, and learn about their individual and collective capabilities.
The film also advocates for the protection of wild spaces that we hold near and dear to our hearts, as the Peel River Watershed is one of the last undeveloped watersheds in Canada. The area has been the subject of a five-year legal battle between the government and local First Nations and environmental groups fighting for the protection of the land and culture in the wake of mining and oil exploration. The Peel Project blends art, science and storytelling to connect audiences to the Peel River Watershed in lieu of this fight for environmental justice.
Runtime: 68 minutes
Celebrate our 40th Anniversary with us: Project Canoe is once again participating in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge to send more young people on canoe trips!
When you run or walk for Project Canoe, you’re raising funds that go directly to programs. Many people credit their time on canoe trips with making them the person they are today, but for some the opportunity is simply not available. Over our 40 year history we have bridged the gap for thousands of young people who are unable to access the Great Canadian Outdoors.
Join our team and help make this possible for more youth!
It's easy to register to run with Project Canoe! To register, click 'Register' below and follow the instructions.
