UPDATE (As of July 3, 2014) – Due to the safety concerns associated with high river flows, which are forecast to remain well above normal seasonal flows for the South Saskatchewan River, along with low participant registration numbers to date, the Back to Batoche Canoe Trip scheduled to take place July 16 – 18, 2014 is cancelled.
Registered participants will be advised of the cancellation and, accordingly, registration fee payments received by CUPE Saskatchewan will be returned via regular mail.
During this annual voyage, participants navigate the waters of the South Saskatchewan River by canoe beginning at Clarkboro Ferry crossing (formerly Warman Ferry crossing) and arriving at the historic Métis community of Batoche, Saskatchewan—learning about Aboriginal culture, history and traditions along the way. Participants camp at Valley Regional Park (Rosthern, Saskatchewan) located 35 minutes north of Saskatoon on Highway 11.
After the canoe trip, participants are encouraged to attend the Back to Batoche festivities that run July 17 – 20, 2014.
Early registration deadline: June 27, 2014
// Only registrations received with full payment will be eligible for a reserved space. //
