Welcome to Kanata Nordic

Kanata Nordic is dedicated to promoting lifelong activity, fitness and enjoyment of the outdoors through a variety of cross-country ski programs offered in a friendly club setting. The club is a member of Cross Country Ontario and its programs are based on Cross Country Canada’s skills development model. Established in 1979, Kanata Nordic now calls Wesley Clover Parks home with a growing trail-network for all skiers to enjoy. Cross country skiing is a great way to get out and get active in the cold weather in Ottawa and is a sport the whole family can enjoy together.

We’re trying something new! Every week for the rest of the season, we’ll look ahead to the weekend and give you our best guess for the weekend’s grip wax.
