About the Author

Sanford Osler

Sanford Osler was introduced to canoes as a youngster at summer camp, an event that sparked a lifelong interest in the role of the canoe in our history and modern-day lives. This fascination has led him to collect research and information about the subject over numerous years, and he has given talks about the canoe to audiences across BC. Osler has owned a red sixteen-foot wooden canoe for over forty years and has taken it on trips throughout Canada including to the Broken Islands, Bowron Lakes, and Gulf Islands. Osler holds an MA from the University of British Columbia and is currently vice-chair of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives Commission and a trustee of the North Vancouver District Public Library
