About - Formation Pagaie Quebec
Formation Pagaie Québec was born from an association between the two most active and experienced sea kayaking instructors in the greater Quebec City region, namely Jonathan Chabot (3 kdm FQCK instructor and level IV FQCK practitioner and Paddle Canada) and Patrice Boulay ( 2 kdm FQCK instructor and level IV FQCK and Paddle Canada practitioner).
Since 2013, first under the name Formation Kayak Québec, our mission has been to offer participants professional and quality training related to the practice of sea kayaking, in a safe environment combining pleasure and self-development.
In 2015, we participated in the founding of the Défi Kayak Desgagnés by establishing the logistics on the water and by acting as responsible for the supervision of kayakers as chief coaches. A mandate that has continued every year since.
In 2017, we expanded the team of instructors with the arrival of Mathieu Fortier. His contagious passion and charisma only accentuate the number of athletes who improve their skills thanks to us.
In 2021, it is the year of great changes with the merger between Formation Kayak Québec and the company Pagaie Québec, to become the Formation Pagaie Québec division. The objective is to offer better services and follow-ups for our customers, whose number is constantly growing. In this sense, we are pleased to welcome this year Gilles Drouin to the team of instructors. Gilles is an experienced teacher whose dynamism and passion will quickly put you at ease. Later that season, the talented Jean-Louis Blouin was also added to the team.
To all of you, welcome to the Formation Pagaie Québec family!
