Welland Recreational Waterway Master Plan Public Session

The Welland Recreational Canal Corporation (WRCC) is pleased to invite you to its Master Plan Public Session hosted at the Welland International Flatwater Centre on Wednesday, October 1st at 6:00 pm.

The Master Plan for the Welland Recreational Waterway was initiated in November of 2006; it is intended to be a conceptual guideline to ‘point the way’ and encourage further high-level, detailed planning and the development and enhancement of the Waterway and Canal Lands. The original plan, adopted by Council in June of 2008, was derived from input from the community, Councillors of the City of Welland, Welland Recreational Canal Corporation Board and Staff, City of Welland Staff, and, region-wide stakeholder groups through interviews, workshops, community forums and individual submissions.

The evening will begin with an overview of improvements to the waterway since 2008, when the Welland Recreational Canal Corporation took an active role in maintaining the Waterway and Canal Lands. There will be a presentation at 6:45 pm, which will include examining how far the waterway has come in the past five years as well as the vision for the next 5 years. Staying true to WRCC’s mandate of developing the recreational waterway for the benefit of the community, there will be a survey for the public conducted at the conclusion of the event to gather input. This will allow the not-for-profit organization to strengthen the role the waterway plays in the quality of life for our community.

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.
