The Canadian Canoe Museum stewards the world’s largest collection of canoes, kayaks, and paddled watercraft. The museum’s new facility will ensure that a fundamental part of Canadian heritage is not lost and allow the museum’s entire collection to reside and be displayed in a single location that meets Class A conservation standards.
The buildings design echo’s its influence by the canoe and utilizes mass timber in its structure. This project utilizes Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for design and construction. This purpose-built, two-storey facility offers 65,000 sq. ft. that will become a vibrant space for the museum’s collection and activities, with a 17,000 sq. ft. exhibition hall for brand new exhibits.
