Advocacy is a community wide effort and paramount to this is reaching out to communities outside of the whitewater world to foster good relationships in order to gain partners.
Whitewater paddlers are adept at caring for these relationships. Our community is one of respect, friendliness, safety and stewardship.
If we maintain and improve these qualities, advocating for our sport and for rivers will find less resistance from those outside of the whitewater community.
If you would like to get involved, consider joining the Whitewater Ontario Advocacy Committee. You can direct any questions or to reach out to them via email.
