A tip-top outfitter! I lead a group of 6 men who have been going together on fly-in fishing trips with Canoe Canada every summer for more than a decade. Every trip is awesome - great lakes, great fishing, great service. Jeremy and his staff are all extremely friendly, helpful, and competent.

I’ve done 11 trips with Canoe Canada, and there is no better outfitter in all of Canada. 5 paddle in trips, and 6 fly in trips have been nothing short of perfect.
The entire staff (Jim in the early years, and now Jeremy) spearhead a customer first experience that I’ve never seen matched. The prices are awesome, the service impeccable, the fishing is stuff of legends, and the experience is A+ all the way around.
There are other options, but CCO has my money and patronage forever.
Great job Jeremy.........

And just in case anyone ever asks, I’m the crazy American who walked out of Stanton Bay to the highway....... long story.

A fishing dream trip. Very impressed with the people who work there. Can't wait to do it again. Some of the biggest fish I have ever caught.

Canoe Canada review

Any paddler arriving at the canoeing capital of Canada would be instantly excited to pass the welcome signs of Atikokan. We were excited as any other to begin our trip and upon seeing the beautiful Canoe Canada building we thought wow! Then it changed. My spouse entered first to let the outfitter know that we arrived and even though we weren't expected to pick up the rentals until tomorrow we wanted to pick up some maps and local information on fishing and camping so we could prepare for our 5 day trip. I was outside taking photos of the beautiful building and walked in maybe 3-5 minutes after my partner entered only to find Jim aggressively yelling at Adam saying "I'm an outfitter it's not my job - I don't know what you want from me I'm not here to plan your trip!." Adam's a happy go lucky guy so I was beyond surprised to walk into a conversation like that and asked what was the reason behind the hostility and looking at Adam wondering what he might have said to Jim. Apparently Adam just told him he was here to check in and was asking about fishing when Jim lashed out. Our booking was arranged by a third party outdoor company and Jim was angry because people normally booked 5 months in advance but we booked only a couple weeks in advance. I changed the subject and proceeded to direct the conversation back to highlighting areas of the Quetico area, as Jim was obviously very experienced and knowledgeable. He essentially spent the better part of 30 minutes telling us we didn't know what we were doing (without any idea who were we're as paddlers or even humans) and condescendingly gave us a quick review of a part of the area with the frequent jab of "well you could go here because the fishing is great but no you probably shouldn't because you can't handle it and if you end up crying - so you should just go this route. " He belittled us and was aggressive and rude. This was the worst and more unprofessional human encounter we have ever experienced. It does not matter how experienced you are - you do NOT treat people the way Jim treated us. We are travelling as outdoor ambassadors and our goal is to share the Canadian Experience with all Canadians and connect with the community. Our goal is to be inspired and inspirational and thankfully Atikokan has such redeeming qualities as a compassionate town that we have been telling everyone to come to the town to paddle but at all costs avoid CANOE CANADA.(obviously judge for yourself) But there are PLENTY of other outfitters that charge less and treat you like a person. We spoke to a couple paddlers in their 60's and they also told us of their past experiences with Canoe Canada as being unpleasant so even though we thought perhaps Jim was having a bad day, that benefit of the doubt was washed away by their account of their experiences.

We are not experienced paddlers but we had an incredible 4 day trip in Quetico Park thanks to Canoe Canada. They could not have been more helpful-we booked with only a week's notice and they were able to quickly secure our permit and answered many questions on the phone (thanks, Jada!). When we got there, Shane spent a lot of time going over our route and gear and answering more questions. Very accommodating of vegetarian, non-fisherpeople needs. The route he picked for us was excellent, often very challenging for novices but so, so much fun. The gear was top notch and included everything we needed for everything that came up along the way. When we got back, he seemed to be genuinely interested in hearing about our trip. (Also helped me find a dentist due to an issue that arose on the trip.)
Cannot say enough good things about this outfitter-personable, knowledgeable, great equipment...would recommend them for novices and experienced alike. And the area is beyond words beautiful and peaceful...hope to go back someday and will definitely use this same company.

Thanks, Shane and Jada, for taking good care of us! It was a trip we will never forget.

If you are looking for a quality outfitter with well maintained outpost cabins and equipment, you don't have to look much further. My family and I would highly recommend the service of what was previously called BUD & JIM's, to the now well known Canoe Canada Outfitters. These folks run a family owned business with plenty of attention to detail and warm hospitality. I can't say enough about how much my extended family (Sisters, Brother, Brother-in laws, Sons, Daughter, Nephews, Friends and Wife) all appreciate the numerous trips we have taken over the years!!

I've gone moose hunting last 2 years flying in to remote lake through canoe Canada and atikokan air. They treat you like family,the pilots are great and there knowledge of the area and moose hunting is 2nd to none. Cabin is great, nothing beats a hot shower after a rainy day hunt. Fishing is awesome, whole lake to our selfs.

Guaranteed, Jim will set you up with exactly the equipment you'll need and give you excellent suggestions on routes, portages, camp sites and fish locations. He couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely book with him next year. Fantastic outfitter!

Quetico is awesome. These guys make it all come together. From finding fishing holes to knowledge of the conditions, everything was solid. The canoes are also top notch. We have rented before and had REALLY old and patched up canoes. It seems like they replace them often. I recommend!!! Our trips were in 2015 and 2014.

We are uber-experienced paddlers with 25 years of wilderness tripping around Ontario. Our trips are always do-it-yourself excursions where we are responsible for every single detail. However, in 2015 we decided to engage Canoe Canada and Aitkokan Aero (sister companies) for a Quetico adventure. The trip was a stunning success thanks to these outfitters.

Jim at Canoe Canada was super knowledgeable, super helpful, and super friendly. We literally felt a little guilty about the amount of expert advice and assistance we received. He is simply the best. Likewise for Jeremy at Aitkokan Aero. He is detailed, organized and flexible. Our flight into the park was perfect. You cannot go wrong with Canoe Canada. We will be back.
