Canvas Covered Canoes Repaired & Restored

Welcome to Copper Canyon Canoe

Canvas Covered CanoeCopper Canyon Canoe is located just an hours drive north from Victoria, in Duncan, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island. We build, repair, restore, and recover canvas-covered canoes by such well known makers as Chestnut, Peterborough, Greenwood, Old Town, Faber, Huron, Big Chief, Tremblay, Gros-Louis and Bastien Brothers.

If you have a canoe in need of minor or major repairs please feel free to contact us for a free evaluation and estimate. If you’re looking for a canvas covered canoe we can custom build one to meet your needs or you can adopt one of our canoes currently slated for restoration.

Looking for a New Home

As many of you may know, the the ownership of our much loved work shop recently changed hands and Copper Canyon Canoe is now in search of a new home. If you have, or know of anyone, in the Cowichan Valley who has workshop space, an old barn or building, possibly in need of renovation, that might be available please contact us.

Life Is Good

“I have always believed that the Canadian Wooden canoe is one of the greatest achievements of mankind. There is nothing that is so aesthetically pleasing and yet so functional and versatile as the canoe. It is as much a part of our land as the rocks and trees and lakes and rivers.”Bill Mason
