Inspiring Canada – by canoe



Join your MVFN friends, and other ‘kindred spirits’,
Thursday June 18th @ 6:45 pm

Dr. James Raffan is going to help MVFN launch the 2020 padding season with a presentation on the Canadian Canoe Museum.

The Canadian Canoe Museum in Peterborough, Ontario, has stewarded, for the last 20 years, the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks and paddled watercraft. Indeed, The Senate of Canada has declared the museum as being “a cultural asset of national significance.” Whether you’ve visited the Museum or not, James’ presentation will undoubtedly share fascinating insights and stories concerning the evolution of this unique window on our shared Canadian heritage…including up-to-date news about the ongoing new museum re-location project!

James, currently Director of External Relations for The Canadian Canoe Museum, has been a part of the museum since its inception, having held a number of roles including, most recently, the Director of Development and Director Emeritus.

The meeting will ‘officially begin’ at 7 pm sharp with a few introductory comments. James’ presentation will be approximately 50 minutes with an additional 15 minutes allotted for Questions. Therefore, the session will ‘officially’ conclude by 8:15 pm
