Dear team captains,

I am very happy to share with you the Mailer 2 concerning the 25th annual CSCE-CAC Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition (CNCCC), which will take place from May 15th to 18th, 2019 at École Polytechnique de Montréal in Montréal.

The present document is mostly intended to give important information about the official team registration and the following:

  • Summary of important dates;
  • Preliminary competition schedule;
  • Official team registration form

Please note that the deadline for team registration is December 15th, 2018 and is 500$. In order to register officially your team, you must send a printed and completed version of the Team Registration Form with a 500$ check payable to:

Canadian Society for Civil Engineering

521-300 St-Sacrement, Montréal, QC, H2Y 1X4

att: Student Competition Committee 

Note that all important information will be posted throughout the year on our brand new website: Team members are also strongly encouraged to follow the Facebook and Instagram pages of the CNCCC (@cnccc.cnccb) for last minute information and exclusive content.

This year, instant communications between the organizing committees (the CSCE student competition committee as well as Polytechnique’s local committee) and team captains will be done using Slack. We recommend for team captains to download Slack ahead of time. A link will be sent in the following weeks to every captain and co-captain in order to join the workspace.

If your school doesn’t have a concrete canoe team but is interested in forming one in order to participate in this year’s competition, please contact us. We also encourage you to read the guideline on how to “start a team“, available on our webpage!

For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
