Commodores Dinner Becomes Celebration of Rings Event

The Host Organizing Committee is pleased to host a new event in place of the Commodores Dinner - The Celebration of Rings. It's an evening honouring our decorated Canoe Kayak athletes returning from National and International competitions. We will also recognize the many volunteers and Commodores that fuel the sport of Canoe Kayak.

This event is proudly sponsored by McInnes Cooper, and will be hosted in their beautiful facility on the Halifax Harbour. More information to come as we approach the Celebration of Rings.
