Canoe builders in Canada are varied in a number of ways. There are large mass production manufacturers and custom individual builders.
The materials used range from the original birch bark to high tech composites.
I have tried to show as wide a range as possible within provincial/territorial boundaries.
Please be aware that there are canoe builders out there that do not have a website, and therefore are not included here.
