To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, students of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island are crafting traditional canoes to paddle down a local river in the spring of 2017. The initiative is being participated in by students of Charlottetown Rural High School and is part of a national campaign by the Canadian Voyageur Brigade Society.

Students involved in the project are currently partaking in traditional canoe making and will take their new vessels to a river in the province starting in April 2017.

The initiative comes as a way for students to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, honor the rich history of the country and partake in a rewarding project that will make for a fun activity come next year.
