Is there anything more truly Canadian, or more iconic, than paddling a cedar rib canvas covered canoe? It’s in our DNA!

Tremblay Canoes Ltd was located in St. Felicien, Quebec. They were the oldest manufacture of canvas canoes in Canada when operating. Built by Indigenous craftsmen back in the day, the company was most notable for having covered their canoes with "Verolite" - a PVC-impregnated canvas. The plastic coated canvas was exclusive with Tremblay Canoes. Verolite eliminated exterior maintenance and periodic canvas repainting and didn’t take on additional weight with passing years, nor was it affected by heat or cold. Plus it was more durable and scuff resistant than painted canvas and was lighter in weight. It was available in green, orange and red, but the red was not guaranteed against fading.

Tremblay offered Chibougamau (Pleasure Canoes) which included this 16’ x 36” x 12 ½“ Huron pointed stern model having 5 thwarts, with keel, a 900lb capacity, and weighs in at only 70lbs. It has rawhide laced seats and includes 2 original Beavertail paddles. It was originally red but now has faded to a nice mango color. Owned by the same family for 50 years and it has always been garage stored…so no wood rot. It’s in unbelievable condition for a 50 year old cedar rib canvas canoe. The canoe is located in Courtenay, BC. Own a piece of our Canadian heritage and some true art…and start paddling! $1500.
