Grants & Funding

The Ottawa River Runners is a not-for-profit organization, and is proud to have received some grants over the years, in order to help maintain the facility, and to build and to improve the programs offered to youth and adults.

The Ontarion Trillium Foundation

Thanks go to the OTF for the following support in 2007.  An acknowledgement plaque is fixed to one of the new wire stringing poles at our revitalized Pumphouse training facility.

A grant of $14,400 over one year was given to purchase equipment and make renovations to the training course. The initiative will help to increase membership and participation in the sport of whitewater paddling, enhance training and improve competitive events.

Making Dreams Possible Club Coaching Grants (September 2008)

The GM Making Dreams Possible Club Coaching Grant is a GM funded initiative coordinated through the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) which aims to enhance the experience of Canadian athletes through quality coaching by offering grants to local sport clubs for coach training and development.

Thanks to GM for a $2000 grant which was used by ORR for a level one Whitewater Ontario coaching and instruction program held on the last weekend of September Friday evening the 26th, Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th with 12 participants.  Thanks also to Carole Westwood for teaching.  It is important that we develop young coaches to help grow the club.
