Getting involved in the community

Late 2015, and a handful of Space for Life employees push the notion of teamwork even further: they found the first Space for Life ice canoeing team! A happy mix of running, bobsledding, rowing and rabaska, ice canoeing originated in Québec and is part of our winter culture. A sport that attracts considerable media attention every year at the Québec Winter Carnival, the activity is gaining in popularity with athletes and the general public.

For the last three years, each February it’s even been possible for Montrealers to watch ice canoes race on the waters of the Old Port.

After intensive training camps, the Space for Life team signed up for official competitions. Their goal: raise funds for the Jérôme-Brisson-Curadeau Bursary Fund. Those funds will make it possible for children living in disadvantaged circumstances to attend, during the summer season, the day camps of the Botanical Garden or the Biodôme.

Psst!
The next race is on February 20 in the Old Port of Montréal. Come cheer them on!
