Hello and welcome to one of our new members: Bearwood Canoe Company.

Since 1989, Pam Wedd of Bearwood Canoe Company has been building and restoring wooden canoes just 25 minutes east of Parry Sound. Pam is extraordinarily dedicated to the traditional craft of building wooden canoes in Canada.

A charter member of the Wooden Canoe Builder’s Guild and the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, Pam recognizes not only the significance of her trade’s sustainability but also of the region in which she practices. The Bearwood Canoe Company is a great example of the vibrancy that can be found in our local community.

“We feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. Georgian Bay is such an incredible waterway and being able to see it, up close, by wooden canoe is a truly memorable experience. This low impact, gentle way of being in the Biosphere is a remarkable gift.”

Pam offers classes in canoe construction, repair and restoration at her workshop near the village of Orrville.
