CMQ Canoe Race

< Go back to the preliminary program

CMQ Canoe racing is quite a sport!

Who’ll win the competition? Some fifty teams will race across the St. Lawrence River for first place. Strong winds, troubled waters, canoeists give it their all during this extreme competition over 3.2 km for women at the elite and sports level and over 6.4 km for elite men. Come encourage them as they take on the tide!

Did you know that the canoe used to be the only mode of transportation between the two shores?
