     ABOUT
Georgian Bay Paddling was established by head Canoe Instructor Kelly Miller. She first learned of her love for canoeing through the Outdoors club at her Collingwood high school and continued to practice the sport throughout her life, often with her own kids in tow, and dabbling in kayaking as well. Later in life, as an established teacher, Kelly decided to earn her ORKCA Basic Canoeing Instructor Certification in order to combine two of her favourite things: teaching and paddling. She feels very fortunate to be able to teach these skills in the beautiful Collingwood area, seeing the joy in her students' eyes (kids and adults alike) as they step out of the norm of the classroom environment.
Qualifications: ORCKA Basic Canoeing Instructor, ORCKA River Running 1A, ORCKA Flatwater Kayaing, First Aid/CPR, OCT

Our Mission at Georgian Bay Paddling is to provide a safe, fun, inclusive and informative environment for everyone who has an interest in paddling, whether new to it or looking to improve technique.

    Equity and Accessibility

We, at Georgian Bay Paddling, are committed to offering programming to all. If someone wants to get on the water, we want to help them get there! Since every person's needs are unique, please feel free to contact us so we can work together toward removing barriers that exist and introduce you to the amazing world of recreational paddling.
