About Us

Two generations of wilderness experience at your service.

Canoe Canada was established in 1974 with one purpose: to share our knowledge of the Quetico wilderness country with outdoor enthusiasts seeking real adventure and security in the knowledge of excellent equipment and careful planning. Our commitment to quality and our wilderness experience makes Canoe Canada’s service uniquely personal.

Our Team

Bud Dickson

Bud was born and raised in the wilds of Northern Ontario, with Quetico Park as his backyard. As a youth, he paddled and portaged its historic trails in search of fish and adventure. As an adult, in the uniform of a Canadian Ranger, he traveled the remote country for the Ontario Government, exploring and cutting portages into lakes where few people had set foot before.

Jeremy Dickson

Bud’s son Jeremy grew up surrounded by canoeists and their incredible stories of trips to Quetico country. It’s no surprise that from his first canoe trip with his parents at age 3, he was hooked. Since then, Jeremy has spent his life immersed in the Park, guiding and exploring.
