Seeking your comments to develop the Canoeing Victoria Strategic Facilities Plan

Canoeing Victoria have commenced a landmark planning study into the current provision and future development of paddle sports facilities across Victoria.  We have appointed consultants insideEDGE Sport & Leisure Planning to work closely with our sport to undertake the study.

We keen to receive comments from our canoe clubs and members, as well as organisations and individuals who have an interest in canoeing.

The Canoeing Victoria Strategic Facilities Plan is aimed at providing a clear focus on the future development, growth and sustainability of paddling facilities across Victoria for the next 20 years.  Key objectives include encouraging and supporting grassroots community-based participation opportunities, supporting elite level athletes to achieve outstanding performance results, and identifying opportunities to attract national and international canoeing events to Victoria.
