The Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) is seeking permission from the City of Pickering to relocate their club site and run a number of their programs out of Progress Frenchman’s Bay East Park, located on Front Street in East Shore. While PRCC has already moved their children’s programs to Rouge Beach in Scarborough, they would like to maintain a site at Frenchman’s Bay for the Special Olympics (PaddleAll), High Performance & Development, Masters and Dragon Boat programs. The width and depth of the Rouge River is not suitable for these particular programs. The PRCC has committed to covering any costs associated with installing and maintaining site containers and delivering programming at the new site.

In order to consider the request of PRCC, the City seeks to collect feedback from the community on their proposal. Please review the proposal provided by the PRCC here
