To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s foundation a series of north canoe brigades will start on July 1 of 2017 and last two weeks. There will be brigades in all regions across Canada. The New Brunswick Brigade will follow the Saint John River, starting on July 15, 2017 in Florenceville-Bristol and finish the following Saturday on July 22 with a paddle through the Saint John Harbour.
Most days will see the brigade cover between 40 and 60 kilometers through Woodstock, Nackawic, Fredericton, Gagetown, Oak Point, and a final stop in Saint John.
