You're Invited to the Tank to Waterway Celebration

The inaugural winter season at the Welland Indoor Paddle Tank is ready for transition to the Waterway. With over 1,000 people participating in activities at the Welland International Flatwater Centre (WIFC) tank this winter, the multiple programs and offerings had much success. The ice has cleared, spring has sprung and the Welland Recreational Canal Corporation invites you to join us at the ‘Tank to Waterway Celebration’ on Saturday, May 2nd, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm, at the WIFC North Course.

After learning the technique in the Welland Indoor Paddle Tank through free Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund (OSRCF) Indoor Paddle Tank Programming or club programming, the Welland Recreational Canal Corporation would like to celebrate the hard work during these winter months and transition to the on-water action. With a FREE barbeque courtesy of OSRCF, the community is encouraged to get out on the waterway during this FREE event in beginner rowing shells, dragon boats, canoes, and kayaks with local clubs providing flatwater tips to those interested. Rowing machines (ergs) will also be made available for the public.

Whether you have participated in every Friday night free programming session through the Boarding Pass Program, or have never participated in a flatwater sport, everyone is encouraged to come out from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm, grab a paddle or an oar and give a flatwater sport a try!

Join us:

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015.
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Welland International Flatwater Centre North Course
16 Townline Tunnel Road
Welland, ON

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.
