Experience a Natural Adventure in an Urban Environment!

At the heart of Canada's largest urban region is the Don River. Once a year, Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) provides a unique opportunity for people to paddle the Don River from Ernest Thompson Seton Park to the mouth at the Keating Channel.

Manulife Paddle the Don is all about having fun, enjoying nature, and celebrating the Don River watershed. The trip also provides a time for reflection on all the benefits we derive from the natural environment - air, water, resources, recreation, and spiritual renewal - that are integral to the health and function of the city and the surrounding region.


Preparing for Manulife Paddle the Don

Before the day of the paddle, please take some time to review this website to learn more about Manulife Paddler the Don. Don't forget to review the About the Event and the Resources Page to ensure that your trip down the river is a great experience!
