WRCC Keeping Welland Flatwater Centre Busy in 2014

The 2014 season will see more than thirty (30) events hosted on Welland’s Waterway; the flatwater sports season will consist of a wide range of sports and sporting events taking place on the North and South Courses of the Flatwater Centre, along the Waterway, as well as taking place at the PenFinancial Credit Union Flatwater Community Centre.

From community-based initiatives, to training sessions, to hard fought competitions and championships, the activities around the Welland International Flatwater Centre will continue to be a catalyst for economic benefit to local businesses and broader community engagement. More than 11,175 athletes are expected to visit Welland and race on Welland’s Waterway in 2014. On-the-water training for local clubs has been underway since the ice cleared and our first national level training camp started this week.

To join the WIFC volunteer team or assist with an event, interested individuals are encouraged to sign up via the online portal at www.canalcorp.ca .

German senior men’s canoe polo team dedicates gold medal to fallen teammate

Sep 6th, 2018

Germany nearly won it all on the water after losing so much off of it. Only a 3-2 loss to Great Britain in the men's under-21 final prevented Germany from sweeping all four divisions at the 2018 International Canoe Federation Canoe Polo World Championships in Welland.


  • The 2013 Junior and U23 champs was the most wonderful experience for us in South Africa. Although our kayak community is relatively small, we are an intense group of loyal supporters. Following the build-up on your website as well as your Facebook and the photos on WIFC Facebook page was the highlight of my day. Not only mine but many of us shared links from early morning. Thanks for the effort and a huge congratulations on your achievement. The live streaming gave many of us goose bumps and the occasional lump in the throat. I checked many comments by parents all over the globe, don`t worry, we are all the same, from Japan, Canada, Africa. Thanks for sharing the wonderful experience. Today I could watch my son`s semi-final on Youtube, tonight we will watch it again and every day I will check Youtube for new uploads.
