This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Canadian Heritage River System (CHRS)! Established in 1984, the CHRS has played a crucial role in stewarding and promoting Canada’s river heritage.

We worked with past and current CHRS participants from across the country to gather anecdotes, pictures, and art pieces that tell the story of the CHRS. Put on your life jacket, here we go!
