Quamichan Lake: Home of Rowing Canada!

We are very excited about today’s announcement by Rowing Canada that our national rowing team will make its permanent home at Quamichan Lake following the 2020 Olympics.  Watch for the crews using the lake over the next two years as a training camp site while we prepare Art Mann Park to house the program and their boats.

Maple Bay Rowing Club is an active partner in welcoming RCA to our site at Quamichan.  This will be good for the club and for the community.
