There are a number of Voyageur brigades being planned by various groups for next summer in honour of Canada's sesquicentennial. An excellent overview of these trips is provided in the Voyageur Brigade Society Newsletter below. To help connect paddlers with the organizers of these trips, those that have generated local interest for Vancouver Island participation have a registration option where you can provide your email address to receive updates about specific trips if you want to join a brigade a a member of a team from Vancouver Island.
Brigades are joined as part of a team, so the first step is to collect the names and email addresses of interested parties to determine the level of interest, and from there decide if one team or more can be formed and registered, etc.
