Historically, canoes and kayaks were used primarily for transport, hunting, and trade. Kayaks are closed boats with a cockpit for sitting in and athletes use a double-blade paddle. Canoes are open boats and athletes use a single-blade paddle. 

Canoe/Kayak competition of the Toronto 2017 NAIG will consist of male and female singles, doubles and mixed doubles for 14U, 16U and 19U age categories.
