Volunteers are at the heart of our community. As a volunteer you create opportunity for others to experience the many benefits of sport. Some volunteer as a means to give back or simply to try something new. Whether it’s the friends you make, skills you acquire or memories you create, volunteering with Burnaby Canoe and Kayak Club and our greater paddling community is sure to be a rewarding experience.
Officials ensure fair and high-quality competitions. They run the competition according to the rules to produce accurate results.
Canada has a highly comprehensive officials programs. Every year Canadian officials travel to competitions all over the world to proudly volunteer. Becoming an official starts at the local club level. Many begin by casually volunteering to with a competition and learn from other officials.

Most clubs wouldn’t exist or even have started without dedicated volunteers. From hammering together boat racks to planning fundraisers and socials, volunteerism is at the core of the club system. Volunteering with a club is a great way to be involved in your community and this can open up exciting opportunities at the provincial/division and National level.
Volunteers are needed at every event. Volunteering for an event-day role like a finish line judge or safety person is a great way to get involved.
