The Canso Regatta

Since 1885, the Canso Regatta has been celebrating the proud maritime heritage and people of Canso, Nova Scotia and its surrounding communities.

This year, the Canso and Area Community Events Association has taken the reins and is working toward bringing in some exciting new changes. As always, Regatta is a strictly non-profit event: any proceeds will be put directly back into the community.

We Need You!

The Canso and Area Community Events Association is looking for volunteers.

For over 100 years, volunteerism and community support has been the backbone of the Canso Regatta. Without the hard work of our dedicated team of volunteers, this event wouldn't be possible.

Volunteering isn't the only way you can help! We are looking for photos, videos, stories, printed materials, etc... from any prior Regattas so we can continue to build upon its legacy.

We are also always looking for donations and have several sponsorship and advertising options available. More details will be provided in the coming weeks, but please feel free to contact us with any questions in the meantime.
