I know this is an old thread, but what river in Northern Ontario are you going to spend a month on? Be hard pressed to think of many that would take that long, unless you were going to paddle the length of the Albany or something. The osprey was my primary tripping canoe for many years, at your weight, it should be fine for a month if you pack conservatively.

Find a Swift Raven. Heavy but tough in the RX layup. It is a mack truck but still a solo

Planning on upper Albany, and then cutting over to the Attawapiskat.

ya, osprey might be a bit small for that, some big lakes on that trip. Too bad they never made the raven in kevlar, that would have been the ideal canoe.

I have soloed the nova craft Prospector 16 and Bob Special and both are nice. Depending on your gear weight the bob might be a little small but the prospector 15 or 16 would be decent.
