Turning people into paddlers, athletes into champions, one adventure at a time!

Funded by Sport Manitoba, the Manitoba Paddling Asociation is a Provincial Sport Governing Body for competitive canoe, kayak and dragon boat in Manitoba. Our clubs offer year-round programs for youth and adults to maintain fitness and have fun on and off the water. 


Hello Dragon Boaters!

It is our pleasure to announce that MPA has teamed up with the Never Alone Cancer Foundation to help Manitobans and their families that are living with cancer.  Dragon Boating has long been associated with supporting and fundraising for the fight against cancer, a disease that most families can, unfortunately, relate to one way or another.  


The Never Alone Cancer Foundation is a Manitoba based charity that provide emotional, financial, and informational support to patients, families, and caregivers affected by cancer.  All of the money raised stays in Manitoba to help your families, friends, and neighbours during a very difficult time in their lives.  The Never Alone Cancer Foundation is committed to improving the lives of people impacted by cancer.
