Voyageur Canoe Project
Refurbishing Lakehead's Current Voyageur Canoe Fleet
The Voyageur canoes are powerful tools the School of ORPT can use to connect students to the community, land, culture and heritage. They will be used for extended wilderness field courses, outdoor skills and theory and group dynamics development, part of student orientation, student recruitment and community engagement programming.
The funds will be used to repair and refurbish at least one of Lakehead University's four Voyageur canoes. This includes but isn't limited to:
• Replacing woodwork (e.g. gunwales, keels, ribs)
• Assessing and reinforcing composite hulls
• Designing new seats and thwarts that will strengthen and reinforce hulls
