History of Canoe the Nonquon..
Canoe the Nonquon was created by the Lake Scugog Historical Society in 1969 as an annual event to raise money for the then newly formed Scugog Shores Museum. Since 1969 the race has raised over $250,000. The race is organized and run primarily by local volunteers. The race attracts participants of all ages and skill levels from across Southern Ontario. It is one of the largest and oldest races of its kind in Ontario.
Thanks to Mayor Chuck Mercier and Regional Councillor Bobbie Drew for helping us promote the 2014 event!
Over 60 local businesses sponsor the race by placing advertisements in the race brochure and/or by donating prizes. We thank all involved and hope that you will support all our sponsor businesses.
