This volunteer commission oversees and promotes Nova Scotia's heritage waterway and the numerous points of interest it offers.

The Canal is the Province's one best chance to learn of our past and how we are only limited by our imaginations. Many of the best canoe and kayak enthusiasts in the world have participated in international competitions held here. That, plus some paddling environments found nowhere else in the world, (tidal bore rapids) offer a uniquely challenging environment for family adventurers. With all these things and more, the Shubenacadie Canal is truly one of this country's great natural history and tourism sites.
