Banff Canoe Club

Banff Canoe Club is now located where, in 1899, William Mather purchased the Bow River Boat House and built a second dock, the North Landing. The Bow River was once a busy place. As early as 1888, residents and visitors explored the river by renting a canoe or embarking on a scenic tour aboard R.M. Rooper’s motor launch, the Mountain Belle.In Canada, the canoe has been a theme in history and folklore, and is a symbol of Canadian identity. From 1935 to 1986 the Canadian silver dollar depicted a voyageur and an indigenous person paddling a canoe with the northern lights in the background.
