CKO Restructuring - Call for Volunteers

Canoe Kayak Ontario (CKO) Restructuring - Call for Volunteers


Whitewater Ontario is one of three affiliates of Canoe Kayak Ontario (the others are sprint racing and marathon racing). CKO is however the formally recognized Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) which is the interface with the ministry for sport and athlete funding. The funding WO receives from the provincial government comes to us via CKO.

CKO is currently undertaking an organizational review to reform its structure so that it is better positioned to maximize provincial funding, and in order to comply with new provincial legislation – the Ontario Not for Profit Corporations Act.

Initial discussions and consultations have been conducted and now CKO needs to develop and assess some restructuring options, that will impact on WO and WO’s relationship with CKO. To review and refine these options each affiliate is being asked to provide two representatives to form a working group for this purpose. These do no need to be board members. Steve Pomeroy who has been on the board for a number of years and has served as Treasurer and President will be one of these representatives. WO is seeking a volunteer interested in taking the second position. This will be a short term assignment lasting 3-6 months and will require review of documents and participation in conference calls and a possible face to face meeting. WO members with interest and/or expertise on organizational change and governance would be ideal.

 If you are interested please forward your name to Courtney Oliver (President This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Steve Pomeroy (Vice President - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) by Oct 1st.


Thank you.

2014 WO donation from HOHW & 2013 donation allocation

Once again, the Hell or High Water Organising Committee has generously directed funds raised to WO's Advocacy Committee. We are the grateful recipients of $1000-thanks HOHW and congratulations on another fantastic event and a battle nearly won!
We would like to take this opportunity to update members on where last year's donation was directed. In consultation with the WO Advocacy Committee & the HOHW Organising Committee, the $2800 was allocated and then offered to the following initiatives:

$1600 to OWL Rafting to cover costs of a new paddler Outhouse at the Lorne Access

$250 to Wilderness Tours to help with road maintenance of the WT takeout

$250 to OWL Rafting to help with road maintenance of McCoys putin and Lorne access road

$250 to OWL Rafting to help with repair/reconstruction costs of the bridge on Lorne access trail which was washed away in high water last spring

$450 kept in reserve for future signage and additional advocacy projects


Due to a major renovation project on the Roger Parson's Centre commencing Sept. 8, 2014, the entire building, including downstairs washrooms, and water supply will be closed to public use from Sept 8th, through the end of the paddling season. The campground area will remain open until late fall.

These changes are being funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the TO2015 legacy funding which is helping WO undertake this needed upgrading  and modernization of the Roger Parsons Centre as part of the WO hosting of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Canoe Slalom event on the Gull River in July 2015. Updates will be posted on this website from time to time.

Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation.
