Information Canoe Kayak Nova Scotia (CKNS) is a non-profit society that fosters the growth and development of safe and environmentally responsible, recreational stand up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking in Nova Scotia: through training, promotion, advocacy and stewardship. 
CKNS is the official voice of recreational canoeing and kayaking in the province.

We have developed several strategies for supporting and encouraging recreational paddling: 
Paddling resources, 
Route maintenance, 
Recreational area and environmental protection through advocacy, and 
Promotion through displays and event hosting. 
COVID-19 updates and responses are available on the CKNS Facebook Page.
