The Canadian River Safety Project is a national organization dedicated to river safety information and education in Canada.

Mission: To make available to Canadians the best river safety information available. To encourage productive reporting of accidents and near misses in order to help provide a better understanding of how things go wrong, and how to avoid them in the future. To provide the knowledge necessary to make good decisions on the water. 

Audience: The primary audience is all whitewater enthusiasts including kayakers, canoeists, rafters, river boarders and river surfers. Additionally this site should be of interest to people thinking of getting into whitewater recreation, going rafting, or otherwise wanting to understand the safety issues surrounding moving water.

Creating a national database of incident reports, similar to the one American Whitewater has been producing for decades, is one of our first, but by no means only, initiatives. The goal of this project is to create a comprehensive resource for river safety information with input from experts around the country.
