Do you have a passion for adventure?  Align your personal and corporate values with environmental sustainability, stewardship, ecotourism or health and fitness? 

Would you like to see your company's name associated with a prestigious sporting event that challenges canoe, kayak and stand-up paddle board paddlers to test their skill and stamina for 64 km against multiple rapids, portages, open water and 100+ other paddlers from across Canada - right here on the Mattawa River!   

The 64 km Mattawa River Canoe Race is a marathon like no other.  

And in 2024, we'd love for you to be a part of it.  Your sponsorship aligns your company with a historic race and in the process, supports the NBMCA environmental, outreach and stewardship programs.

We'd love to explore the opportunity that awaits you!

Importance of Sponsors

Your sponsorship of this well-established event will support the NBMCA's environmental education, outreach and stewardship programs which encourage children and adults to help balance human, economic and environmental needs in the future.

Monetary Sponsorships

Monetary contribution is an essential part of this event; we would not be able to hold this event or offer our outreach and stewardship programs if it were not for the generosity of our sponsors. We use these funds to ensure a quality event that includes race safety, dinner and awards.
