Impact Investment: Canadian Canoe Museum

The Canadian Canoe Museum has a collection of more than 650 paddled watercraft all in one location. And this permanent exhibit is a great way to help visitors explore Canada’s culture, art, and heritage, as well as discover pathways to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.

However, it’s all about to get even better! A $40 million campaign is underway to build a new, 65,000 square-foot home on the shores of Little Lake in Peterborough, a mere four kilometres from the museum’s current cramped, landlocked location.

The Oakville Community Foundation is proud to be part of the Canoe Museum funding group with the Hamilton Community Foundation. This impact investment supports the Canoe Museum’s campaign to build a new 65,000-square-foot home, moving from a cramped, landlocked location to the shores of Little Lake in Peterborough.
