Ask Ron Frenette

composite for Bear Mtn site

Ron Frenette started Canadian Canoes in the mid 1980's while working at a day job teaching Outdoor Education with the Toronto Board of Education. Some how in the evenings Ron and his wife Pat found the time to operate their company which focused on helping people to build their own canoes and kayaks - and to learn to paddle them. Now that he has retired from teaching Ron spends his time helping people build boats and supplying parts for Bear Mountain. We are fortunate to work with Ron and to have access to his vast experience building and using small boats. We are posting some of the questions we receive which Ron has so kindly answered. Visit Ron's site to learn about some of the boats they have built and the paddling adventures taken.
