The Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition

Hosted by

Waterloo University


May 10 to May 12, 2018


For the last 25 years, Canadian universities are building concrete canoes and are evaluated on academic, technical and sports aspects. A special feature is that the canoe must float when completely filled with water and need to accommodate up to four people to do races.


Offer the opportunity to engineering students to apply the theories and concepts learned in class through a challenging project. For many future engineers, this is a first experience that contributes to their formation.


The Canadian National Concrete Canoe Competition 24th edition will be hosted by Waterloo University in Waterloo, Ontario from May 10 – 12, 2018.

Canadian Society for Civil Engineering

The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) is a learned society created to develop and maintain high standards of civil engineering practice in Canada and to enhance the public image of the civil engineering profession. The CSCE is pleased to promote and get involved in the organization of the Canadian National Steel Bridge Competition (CNCCC). Until recently, the Local Organizing Committees of the CNCCC were not supervised and accumulated expertise was lost every year. To ensure successful hosting and sustainability of the competition, the Student Competition Committee of the CSCE was established. The latter is responsible for selecting and supervising the Local Organizing Committee in addition to being actively involved in the organization.



Cement Association of Canada

The Cement Association of Canada (CAC) represents the Canadian cement industry – eight companies with clinker and cement manufacturing facilities, granulators, grinding facilities and cement terminals. Together, we strive to maintain a sustainable industry as well as promote and advance the economic, environmental and societal benefits of building with cement and concrete. A founding member of the Concrete Council of Canada, the CAC builds and maintains effective working relationships with stakeholder organizations. It advances the industry’s position as a proactive partner in addressing society’s sustainability challenge, and in the face of climate change, the resiliency imperative. The CAC advocates for legislative and regulatory environments that allow a fair competitive playing field for its members at all levels of government and it advises on technical matters important to the cement and concrete industries, such as codes, standards, specifications and best practice. CAC’s national office is in Ottawa , with regional offices in Calgary, Québec, Toronto, and Vancouver. (Extracted from CAC website,, November 2016)
