Covid – 19 Update

Kanata Nordic Ski Club will adhere to the requirements and emergency orders implemented by the Government of Ontario.

If you or a household member is experiencing Covid symptoms, or awaiting test results, please do NOT attend your sessions with Kanata Nordic until Ottawa Public Health clears you to end isolation and your test comes back negative.  The complete guidelines for isolation and return to activities can be found here: Tested, What Now?

Please review the information on the Cross Country Ontario website for up-to-date ‘Return To Play’ protocols. These protocols follow the Government of Ontario requirements and emergency orders.

At this time, while we hope to offer the full array of lessons, services and events to the local cross country ski community this coming winter, it is too early to know:

1. what the Provincial and local government rules will be,

2. how Nordiq Canada and Cross Country Ski Ontario respond to those requirements, and

3. what adjustments Kanata Nordic may have to make to implement them.

Please check this Website and the XC Ski Ontario website regularly for updates.

Thank you


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.
