PRCC will be operating all our programs in full compliance with Ministry of Health requirements. See our COVID-19 Response page for more information. We have made many changes to our programs and procedures to keep participants and staff safe.

PLEASE NOTE THAT PARTICIPANTS ARE REQUIRED TO BRING THEIR OWN LIFEJACKETS AS PART OF OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE PROCEDURES. If we are required to cancel the session in which you are registered, full refunds (prorated if mid-session) will be issued.

Special O is a program for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Participants paddle various water crafts such as recreational canoes and kayaks, and sprint race kayaks. All-Abilities provides a safe and inclusive environment where each participant can build skills and confidence on the water at their own pace. The focus is on having fun and being safe! The program includes a safety orientation and instruction by experienced coaches. Each paddler spends time on the water with a paddling partner for 3:1 support. This program is ideal for ages 10 and older, but younger children may be accepted at the discretion of the All-Abilities Coach. Participants may be divided into two groups – recreation or development. The development group has greater focus on skill improvement. Both recreational and development participants can race at regattas, competing against other All-Abilities athletes if they wish. Please refer to the calendar on our website for regatta dates.


Program runs from June 6th to August 29th, 2022 on Monday evenings from 6:00 - 8:00 or June 5th to August 28th, 2022 on Sunday mornings from 9:00-11:00. The cost is $200.00 including all taxes and fees.  Fees include equipment and all regattas. Participants of All-Abilities, along with parents or guardians, become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.

Payment is by credit card or etransfer.  If paying by etransfer, select Other as the payment method.  If the etransfer is not received within 3 business days after registration or by the Thursday before the session begins, the registration will be cancelled.  Etransfer should be made to [email protected] email address and please use "Rouge" as the password.
