About the Manulife Paddle the Don

Experience a Natural Adventure in an Urban Environment!

Once a year, Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) provides a unique opportunity for people to paddle the Don River.

Manulife Paddle the Don is all about having fun, enjoying nature, and celebrating the Don River watershed. The trip also provides a time for reflection on all the benefits we derive from the natural environment - air, water, resources, recreation, and spiritual renewal - that are integral to the health and function of the city and the surrounding region.
