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.
For more information on the club, please read our Kanata Nordic 101 page

We are a volunteer driven club. There are a range of on-snow and off-snow volunteer opportunities for you to learn new skills, make new friends and more.

Events and Activities. We are hoping to bring back the social element to Kanata Nordic this winter, in line with public health guidance. If you’re interested in helping us launch or relaunch social activities (from moonlight skis to club time trial races; daytime social skis to masters training), we need your help to make them a reality. Please contact a member of the executive if you would like to discuss.
