Experience Canadian Heritage Rivers Photo ContestThe Mattawa River, one of 11 Ontario rivers in the Canadian Heritage River System

The Métis have always had a close relationship with rivers. Our voyageur ancestors travelled the rivers as part of the fur trade and built the first historic Métis communities near their shores. Now Canoeroots and Family Camping Magazine is giving you a chance to explore your connection with rivers and have the chance to win some great prizes in the second annual Experience Canadian Heritage Rivers Photo Contest.

Contest runs from May 15, 2012 to October 31, 2012.

Winning photos will be featured in the Spring 2013 issue of Canoeroots & Family Camping magazine and will tour with the 2013 Reel Paddling Film Festival.
