ORR Equipment Policies

The Ottawa River Runners has aquired a fleet of paddling equipment which is used for the benefit of the organization. Club policies which govern use of this equipment are shared below. The ORR would like to acknowledge the support of the Trillium Foundation which allowed for the purchase of most of the club equipment with grants for the summer camps program, and for the slalom development program.

The first priority for ORR equipment is to serve the needs of the programs offered by the organization for members of the club and youth of the Ottawa community. Club members may access equipment when they are participating in programs that require it, or through member loans when they are arranged in advance and allowed by the boat use policies. The fleet consists of; plastic recreational whitewater kayaks, plastic and composite slalom canoes/kayaks, and associated equipment (skirts, PFDs, paddles, helmets). The plastic recreational kayaks primarily serve the summer camps program and youth development programs. The slalom canoes and kayaks serve the youth development programs and the youth introductory level slalom programs.
