Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition

École Polytechnique de Montréal
May 15 – 18th, 2019




For the last 24 years, Canadian universities are building concrete canoes and are evaluated on academic, technical and sports aspects. A special feature is that the canoe must float when completely filled with water and need to accommodate up to four people to do races.


The competition offers the opportunity to engineering students to apply theories and concepts learned in class through a challenging project. For many future engineers, this is a first handson experience that contributes greatly to their education.


The 25th edition of the Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition will be hosted by École Polytechnique de Montréal in Montreal, Quebec from May 15 – 18th, 2019.
