Green Mission

Since VWP’s inception back in 1960, we have known that actions and decisions today will affect what will happen tomorrow.
We are committed to being in the forefront of environmentally friendly practices.

Details

VWP is devoted to keep ecological integrity on Voyageur Island and in all aspects of our participants’ eco-travel through Quetico Park and surrounding areas. We continue to protect our natural spaces and reduce our ecological footprint. This commitment ensures that wilderness will be appreciated in its natural form for generations to come.
Eco-practices are adhered to for this very reason. They are woven throughout all aspects of our Programme delivery. What better way than to lead by example, inspire others and cultivate hope.
We truly believe that we are not masters of nature, but rather a small strand which is part of the large web of life.

Programme Delivery

The Voyageur Wilderness Programme integrates eco-practices throughout all components of its operations. This approach is based on our Métis and Voyageur heritage and the wisdom of our elders. We were “taught” certain fundamental concepts and shown respect for “Mother Earth”, ourselves, family, and community and how everything is interconnected. The traditional concept is to produce youth who grow into moral, ethical, contributing and environmentally conscious adults.
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.
