North Channel and basin

Coverage of the North Channel region.
As defined here, the North Channel runs from Sault Ste Marie eastward to Hwy 6 and the community of Little Current, omitting however the Whitefish River (for which information is filed in Region Killarney). At Toporama, on the other hand, the channel continues well to the east of Little Current.
This folder describes
(a) open-water (aka coastal) Routes on the North Channel (as defined above), and
(b) inland Routes on waters flowing into the Channel, including waters on Manitoulin Island.
Route information for the region is posted also in CCR’s Routes section, at
http://www.myccr.com/canoeroutes/456/canoeroutes

Neighbouring regions.
Since boundaries between CCR’s regions are not all sharp, paddlers might consult also Routes in the following regions.
