Eco-Practices

Non-motorized water transport – Montrealer Canoes (our environmental flagship)

Montrealer Canoes

You immediately see our traditional unique approach to ecological practice on arrival at the Quetico Park Nym Lake landing. We greet you with our “Montrealer” canoes – 32 and 36 foot long replicas of canoes used by the Voyageurs during the fur trade era.

Natural mode of transportation

Students embark and paddle a short ½ miles (800 metres) to Voyageur Island on Nym Lake at the boundary of Quetico Park. This natural mode of transportation moves many people in a non-motorized manner. For efficiency we coordinate the arrival and departure of groups so that when one group is leaving, another is arriving.
The following list of eco-practices of our Programme delivery touch upon major areas that people can readily relate to. From our “signature piece”: the birch bark Montrealer canoe replica (which people immediately identify as VWP), our environmental “flagship” fully depicts zero emission, sustainability and links the past to the present eco-practices; To the commitment to carry it through to the last detail and incorporate it into every aspect of our everyday lives.
