History‎ > ‎


Both the Ottawa Journal and the Ottawa Citizen are good sources for the early history of the club. Much of the Ottawa Citizen is online at Google New Archive. The Citizen published three short accounts of the club.
    “History of Ottawa’s Pioneer Canoe Club”



    “Come to the May Fair of the Ottawa-new Edinburgh Canoe Club – Rockcliffe” 14 May 1931



    “Ottawa Canoe Club Organized 1883” 28 April 1953




Library and Archives Canada has a file of correspondence dealing with the lease of the boathouse site from the NCC.
